There is enough evidence to link a healthy lunch with better memory, cognitive function and academic achievement. And, so I refer you to the Cooking Light website, which offers 22 lunchbox ideas that are easy enough and focuses on healthy, whole foods that will benefit your child today and well into adulthood.
