Schools across the country re open their doors next week, so one of the things many parents will be dreading is getting out the school lunchboxes again.

A growing number of schools now have no-waste policies, and most parents are getting more savvy about reducing waste in their kids’ lunchboxes.

Founder of the Eco-store and Fairground Foundation chair Malcolm Rands told Jack Tame there are several useful tips you can put into practice to ensure kids have a lunchbox which not only looks presentable, but has the right balance of nutrition.

"Where we start, its all about the lunch box. You want to have something which is unbreakable and very sturdy. It is worth spending a little bit more to get something which can keep for ten years or more.

"Making it visually appealing is really important, with lots of colours and a good ratio between sweet and savoury."
