Healthy cafeteria options

7 September, 2014 ,

Making lunches for your kids helps fuel their bodies and minds at school.

But if you know they plan on eating in the cafeteria or getting take-out, it’s a good idea to share these tips to help them choose a healthier lunch.

  • Make your order healthier by asking for extra veggies (raw or steamed).
  • Order a smaller portion or share your meal with friends.
  • Order foods that are lower in calories, fat, sugar, and sodium. For example, choose salad instead of fries, or grilled meat and fish over fried chicken fingers and fish sticks.
  • Ask for gravy, sauces, and salad dressing “on the side,” and use only a small amount.
