In the Box

Lunch Love Calgary
**DISCLAIMER**
The safety of your children is a top priority for us. We want you to have all the information. Everything in our lunchboxes is prepared and cooked in a commercial Alberta Health Services inspected kitchen. Although we work extremely hard to ensure there is no cross-contamination while preparing our lunches we cannot offer a 100% guarantee. Our facility is not completely free of gluten, nuts, corn, soy, pork and seafood.

#1 High-Quality Protein

This is an undeniable essential nutrient for all things related to growth. Our littles need protein for their developing brains, muscles, tissues, immune system, and hormones. A big one here is building neurotransmitters - which is how the brain will communicate to the rest of the body. Research shows that one in seven school-aged children do not meet their daily protein intake goals. The only way we obtain certain amino acids (protein building blocks) is by eating certain protein-rich foods.
 
And quality is key. There is a difference in the nutrient profile of pasture-raised animals. Grass-fed beef has been shown to be leaner than conventional, and higher in essential Omega-3 fatty acids. It's also higher in Vitamin E, some B vitamins, calcium, magnesium and potassium.

#2 Complex Carbohydrates

Our brains need carbohydrates but not all carbs are created equal. We need to get our littles off the energy roller coaster of refined sugars.  Our lunches include high-quality complex carbohydrates to maintain balanced blood sugar levels. This allows our children to have sustained energy and focus throughout the day.

#3 Healthy Fats

Just like carbohydrates, there are good fats and bad fats. Our brains are over half fat, so these are what the brain needs to grow…we don’t want skinny brains for our littles! Most packaged lunch foods contain trans or rancid fats that drain the brain. Good quality essential fatty acids are what the brain wants!

#6 Non-GMO

We believe in natural foods and will always do our best to ensure all ingredients are non-genetically modified.

#7 Seasonal

Children are often intuitive eaters. Their tastes, along with their energy requirements, may change with the seasons. We will always do our best to vary our meals based on seasonal ingredients.

#8 Local

There are so many amazing foods being grown and raised all around us. We will choose local whenever possible.

#9 Organic

There are way too many chemicals in our day-to-day lives. These can be especially disruptive to the growing cells that make up our littles. We want to lessen this burden wherever we can. All of our ingredients are either local herbicide and pesticide-free or organic.

#10 A Love Note

We want our littles to feel loved when they open their lunchbox. We do this by making everything “homemade” and by including a little love note (age-appropriate) for a lunchtime reminder that they are loved, worthy and amazing.
