Making lunch fun, nutritious and delicious
When your kids are out of the house and away from your watchful eye, it can be a real battle to make sure they eat the right kind of food. With fast food abundantly available, the all-powerful draw of the french fry can be hard to resist. But with a little creativity and some new inspiration drawn from this guide to healthy eating options, you can get your kid interested in food that’s as nutritious as it is delicious.
Here, chef Eric Ong from the Westin Beijing has crafted an amazing healthy option lunch box that even the fussiest eater will go bananas for.

And finally, if you’re bored of all those same old Western snacks, we offer a guide to freshening up lunchtime with some fun Chinese alternatives.
