What do you pack in your child's lunch box?

THREE-YEAR-OLD Chanel Cole loves nothing more than her mum's homemade spaghetti bolognese, bananas and mangoes.

And it is all thanks to her health-conscious mum Chloe Tazewell.

When it comes to her daughter's food choices, Chloe puts nutrition first.

We hit the streets to ask if nutrition was a priority at home and when packing a lunch box.

Chloe, 23, who is a busy mum, said her daughter's daycare provides nutritious food for her little girl and when she's at home it's all about a balanced diet.

"At home I try to provide a variety of as much nutrition as I can," Chloe said.

Chloe said it was all about a balanced diet with the occasional treat.

When Chloe has to pack her daughter's lunch box it would be full of homemade foods and snacks instead of packaged items and 'sugar junk.'
