The Magic Lunchbox!

'The Magic Lunchbox' is a captivating, fun story about packing a healthy lunchbox for school, specifically targeting children in their transition to 'big' school.

Central Coast Author Angela Barrett and Illustrator David Walsh have created a fantastic storybook to inspire and delight children in the 4 to 6 year age group.

The Magic Lunchbox storybook and supporting resources are available free to download (see the links in the navigation panel to the left).

The resources were developed with the support of Central Coast primary schools and early childhood education and care services, as well as the Families NSW Transition to School Projects Coordinator, Central Coast.

The storybook and resource package has been offered to all Central Coast schools participating in Live Life Well @ School, and all early childhood education and care services participating in Munch and Move.

The Magic Lunchbox provides an innovative and valuable link between these two programs and settings.

Watch the YouTube clip of the official launch of The Magic Lunchbox. There is a special visit from 'Grandma'. She invites some children to add food to the Magic Lunchbox and see the response!
