Please see below information received from Veg Power:
As part of their ongoing mission to encourage the UK to eat more veg, they would like to make it easier for parents and carers to add more veg to children's lunchboxes. Recent research from Leeds University found that only one in five children had any vegetables or salad in their packed lunch.
To support parents and to make this task as simple as possible, they have developed a ’60 Second Lunchbox Hacks’ that features easy-to-implement ideas.
