What's on the Menu? Healthy Choices for Your Child's Hot Lunch

10 of 13

Try Instead: Tacos

If flavor is what your little one is looking for, tacos might be the healthier way to go. The tacos served in most schools have around 200 calories per serving and one-third the sodium of the BBQ rib sandwich. With around half the fat, too, it's easy to see why this lunch option bodes better for your child's health.
