The National Lunchbox Breakdown

The National Lunchbox Breakdown

Walk down the aisles of any supermarket, and you’ll notice an explosion of prepared foods for kids’ lunches. This collection of three National mini-documentaries takes a closer look at these convenient snacks and meals to find out how they stack up nutritionally. Reporter Reg Sherren profiles Alberta’s APPLE Project promoting active living and healthy eating in schools. Ian Hanomansing assesses the nutritional content of some common lunch items, including the additives, dyes and other questionable ingredients they contain. He then visits one elementary school to see what lunch choices students make when they have healthy options.
