Healthy Sandwich Swaps in a Flash!
A better lunch box is in the making...
With “Back to School” right around the corner, lunch boxes are back in business! Is the classic PB & J or a
plain ham & cheese the only option? Believe it or not, there are lots of “out of the box” delicious and
nutritious lunch options to choose from!
What makes a healthier lunch? More veggies, fiber and healthy fats... and less processed grains, added
sugar and saturated fats! You can simply swap the bread, swap the meat, swap the cheese or swap the
sauce (or jam) to make a better sandwich in a flash!
