More and more schools are realizing the importance of providing healthier lunchtime options, but as a parent, there is still a lot you can do to help your children develop healthy eating habits early to decrease their risk of cancer.
Here are some tips for packing a healthy school lunch:
Include raw veggies – such as carrots, celery, and cucumbers – with a low-fat salad dressing or dip instead of potato chips.
Switch from fatty luncheon meats to low-fat alternatives, such as lean turkey breast.
Include at least one serving of fruit in each lunch. Try experimenting with new types of fruit each week, such as pears, sliced melon, grapefruit, or pineapple.
Sneak vegetables – like lettuce or slices of cucumber, tomato, green pepper, roasted peppers, zucchini or sweet onion – into sandwiches.
Use whole grain bread instead of white bread for sandwiches.
