Brain Power Lunch Box Recipes


Most parents find the morning rush stressful, getting everyone up, dressed, fed and organised ready to start the day. But what parents seem to dread the most is preparing and packing the school lunchbox.


The Morning Juggle & Struggle


Packing a healthy lunch you know your child will enjoy is the vain of many parent’s lives.


And not placing much thought into your child’s lunch is an easy trap to fall into, especially with the mad rush to get out the door each morning.


For a growing child, placing just as much emphasis on what you feed your child for breakfast and lunch is just as important as the decision you make regarding a wholesome nutritious dinner. You wouldn’t feel happy giving them a processed cheese sandwich for dinner.


These delicious recipes are quick and simple to prepare with busy mums in mind, they are beautifully illustrated and nutritionally designed to provide a well-balanced lunch. The recipes focus on protein-rich food to nourish and fuel your child’s body and brain. They provide all the ingredients to help safeguard your child’s health and wellbeing for a joyful day including:


  • Happy moods
  • Improved focus
  • Concentration
  • Memory
  • Good energy levels


The average kid’s lunch can contain up to 25+ teaspoons of sugar!


Sugar is hidden in ‘healthy’ food and we are unaware how much sugar kids are consuming at breakfast.


  • For example fruit straps and dried fruit could contain as much as 8 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Commercial muesli bars can include an addition 8 teaspoons of sugar.
  • One blueberry muffin another 8 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Cheese sandwiches don’t fill tummies, or feed the brain and they will soon be hungry, looking for more sugary snacks.


Symptoms of Low Blood Sugar Mimic ADHD


Eating too much sugar and not enough protein at lunch causes blood sugar levels to raise quickly resulting in a sudden burst of energy followed shortly afterwards by an energy slump.
By mid-afternoon, blood sugar levels are low, resulting in signs and symptoms that mimic ADHD.


Symptoms of Low Blood Sugar and ADHD include:


  • Irritable, grumpy or angry
  • Aggression
  • Sad moods and crying
  • Disruptive behaviour
  • Poor focus and concentration
  • Inability to sit still
  • Inconsistent learning
  • Poor memory retention
  • General fatigue
  • Sleepy and tired
