With the start of the new school term many parents will be thinking about what to put in their children's lunchboxes.

World Cancer Research Fund wants to help parents make choices that are both healthy and something the kids will love. A well-balanced lunch with plenty of fruit and vegetables should help them concentrate on their afternoon lessons and give nutrients that could help prevent cancer in later life.

Eating habits tend to be formed when children are young. Getting them used to eating a variety of healthy foods now will pay dividends in the long run.

We understand that it can be hard to think up different things to tempt them with, so please visit our website on www.wcrf-uk.org for some inspiration. It's full of practical advice.

A healthy diet and lifestyle really does make a difference to your risk of developing cancer.

Lucie Galice, World Cancer Research Fund
