Health Tip: Making Healthy Lunch Choices

Offer kids healthier alternatives

(HealthDay News) -- Many types of standard lunch fare are packed with calories and fat. But there are healthier alternatives that can make for a more nutritious lunch.

The Nemours Foundation suggests these healthier lunch options:

  • Turkey and other low-fat deli meats.
  • Whole grain bread -- instead of white -- spread with mustard or light mayo.
  • Vegetables and dip, air-popped popcorn, and trail mix or baked potato chips, in place of fried potato chips.
  • Fresh fruit or packaged fruit in natural juices, instead of syrup.
  • Yogurt or a homemade fruit-filled muffin, in place of packaged cakes or cookies.
  • Low-fat milk or water, in place of sodas or sugary fruit drinks.
