Daily prizes included lunch bags, knap sacks, water bottles, aprons and cook books. Thousands of Canadians entered the contest and shared their own healthy eating tips and photos. The contest website included five weeks’ worth of healthy snack and lunch menus from the Foundation’s registered dietitians and the Health Check recipe helper app was loaded with over a dozen snack and lunch recipes.
Healthy eating is one of the most important things parents can do for their family’s health and is key to success at school. A healthy breakfast, snacks and meals throughout the day helps children concentrate, be more alert and creative, and more physically active.  For snack and lunch ideas, download the Recipe Helper App .
