We’ve heard time and time again that breakfast is the most important meal of the day ­— but are you putting the same amount of thought into what goes in your lunchbox?
Whether you are preparing to send your kids back to school or gearing up for another busy work week, knowing how to pack a healthy lunch is key to getting the necessary nutrients you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
According to Althea Joseph, a registered dietitian at Bountiful Life Nutrition Services in Niles, your second meal of the day is just as important as what you eat when you first roll out of bed.
“Lunch is so important because it reenergizes your body and boosts your blood sugar levels, which helps you focus on the tasks you need to complete for the remainder of the day,” Althea said.
