Factors on which I plan a meal either for lunch box or at home are : carbs, proteins , vitamins and minerals. Carbs are mainly from Roti or Rice , Protein portion depends either its from  bowl of curds  or paneer or dal . And vitamins & minerals from vegetables only at meal time. I will never add fruit for lunch or lunch box. Fruit should be either for snacking (short break in school for kids ) or an empty stomach

Lunch Box Plan : With this Spring Onion stir fry recipe  , vitamins, minerals  and fiber ( Spring Onion ) along with protein portion ( besan / gram flour) is delivered .   Carbs from roti , cucumber and carrots as salads and butter milk to end the meal .

Spring onions are very rich vitamin C and Calcium .These are also a good source of dietary fibre and vitamins A and B6, thiamine, folate and minerals with good antibacterial and antifungal properties . Always choose spring onions with healthy, fresh, dark green leaves also avoid spring onions with slimy leaves and soft bulbs.
