What's in a healthy lunch?

How do you pack a well-balanced lunch? Many parents might be wondering that as their children go back to school. UW Medicine dietitian Judy Simon explains the different food groups she likes to see in a lunch box. She also tells why it's important that parents suggest options and let children pick. She reminds about food safety, avoiding stinky or sticky foods, and how the school  lunch program can be another choice, when children have enough time to eat.
