National Pack Your Lunch Day is celebrated on March 10th of every year. Lunch packed from home is always special as the person who prepared it would have made it with love. One could reminisce that their lunchtime was a very special break time especially those who have attended the school. Many of us would have become friends once after sharing the lunches. So the daily mystery inside the lunch box will surely make a person enjoy the food with excitement. Over the year, most us are opting to eat food from the hotels and restaurants as with the work pressure and busy schedule. Most of us eat fast foods and as a result, we forgot what is the healthy lunch. Thus National Pack Your Lunch Day has been created and celebrated as a way to make anyone prepare and eat a healthy meal during their lunchtime at least for a day.
