Because lunch periods are rushed or they don’t like the food being served, etc., many students skip lunch or eat unhealthy snacks for lunch. For healthy growth and development, it is essential to eat a balanced meal for lunch.
A healthy lunch should be 1/3 of the daily Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for energy and nutrients and contain foods from several food groupings (whole grains; low-fat or skim milk and milk products; fruits; vegetables; and meats, beans, and nuts).
