This recipe is an excellent source of vitamin C, lycopene and bioflavonoids, which means your skin will love it. In summer, we’re naturally going to be exposed to more sunshine, so this is a great one to be drinking then, when your skin will really benefit from that extra protection and support.

You can also load up on high water content fruits and vegetables, such as cucumber, celery, watermelon and pineapple, which come with the extra benefit of vitamins and enzymes, while being a delicious summertime food.

Munch's Top Ten Tips for Healthy Lunchboxes

e-29

At www.munchnz.co.nz we like to think we are the home of Lunchbox inspiration. We recently launched our Munch Lunchbox Cookbook and have been thinking up lots of great lunchbox recipes.

Here are a few of our top hints and tips that will get your kids gobbling down their lunches and make their lunchboxes the envy of the class. If you are going to spend time and energy creating healthy lunchboxes for your kids, you want them to come home empty!

1. Variety keeps kids interested

Try and mix up the foods you give your kid over the week. Just like adults, kids find it boring eating pretty much the same thing every day. Try out different breads (bagels, wraps, pita bread) to make a change from their usual sandwich. For a change from bread based lunches you could swap them for fritters, muffins, sushi, pasties, mini home-made pizzas, Vietnamese rice paper rolls, mini quiches, frittatas or pasta salads.
