Tips to make Healthy Lunch Choices

Many types of regular lunch fare are packed with calories and fat. But there are healthier alternatives that can make a more nutritious lunch.
  • 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 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.
