It is easy to forget the importance of the midday meal but making time for a healthy lunch can pay off both physically and mentally. Eating and drinking fluids in the middle of the day, several hours after breakfast, reenergizes your body and can raise blood sugar levels when focus and concentration are flagging. If you’re feeling sluggish, eating and drinking even a small lunch can renew your energy and help you feel refreshed and ready to take on the next few hours.
 
It is important to eat foods from each food group; carbohydrate is important to fuel the brain, protein for growth and a small amount of fat to provide you with fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) and omega-3 fats which are available from oily fish (salmon, sardines, mackerel). Fresh, frozen and tinned fish (not tuna) are all good sources of Omega-3 fats.
