Paramedics work long shifts, with unpredictable break times, and are always on the go. If they don’t prepare healthy food, petrol stations or fast food will be their source of lunch, and there aren’t many healthy options there.
Paramedics are busy so it’s important for them to fill up on healthy food that is quick, easy, filling, and non-drowsy.
In the warm Australian climate, it’s also recommended to invest in a good, insulated lunch box with purpose fit ice packs, to keep your food fresher for longer.
Remember, everyone benefits from your healthy eating, not just you, but your patient, family and friends. Paramedics need to stay fit and healthy in order to respond the demands of the job, so we hope these 5 healthy food ideas are helpful (and yummy!)
