Healthy Lunchbox Week


Sun 7 Feb 2021 - Sat 13 Feb 2021


Healthy Lunchbox Week 2021 - 7-13 February

Healthy Lunchbox Week is an initiative of Nutrition Australia that aims to inspire Australian families to create healthy and enjoyable lunchboxes. Occurring at the start of Term 1, when school is back and the daily preparation of lunchbox making has set in, Healthy Lunchbox Week supports schools in sharing relevant lunchbox messaging across the whole school community.

During Healthy Lunchbox Week, Nutrition Australia will be sharing healthy lunchbox posts on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Follow and like their page to be inspired and see what exciting things they get up to during the week.


To help spread the healthy lunchbox message, get your school community involved with the following Healthy Lunchbox Week activities

Make it. Shoot it. Share it. 

How do you lunchbox? Make, shoot and share your lunchbox on Nutrition Australia's Facebook or Instagram and you’ll be in the running to receive some Smash lunchbox gear or the latest Women’s Weekly Lunchbox 2 cookbook.
