Veg Power

As part of Veg Power's on-going 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, Veg Power has developed a ’60 Second Lunchbox Hacks’ PDF (Please click here) for easy-to-implement ideas and serves to make this task as simple as possible.
