What does a healthy, balanced diet contain? Carambola Kidz know the key is eating a range of foods in the right amounts for how active you are.
Carbohydrates are needed for energy in the body. They are found in breads, grains and fruit. A Carambola Kidz Lunches provide many different sources of carbohydrates such as hi-fibre breads, rolls, rice cakes and fruits.
Proteins are our building blocks. They build muscle, tissue and skin. Carambola Kidz uses only top quality sources of protein. Our ham, chicken, turkey, eggs, tuna and cheese come from the top suppliers in Ireland who can provide full traceability on all their products.
Contrary to popular belief not all fats are bad. Fat is needed for insulation, supporting the brain and providing energy. It is important to choose only good sources of fat. That's why at Carambola Kidz we promise to never include foods with high volumes of saturated fats.
We need all the vitamins found in fruits, vegetables, meats and grains. The following is a list of some of the vitamins found in Carambola Kidz lunches and the functions they perform in the body.
