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.

Get the recipe for your own version of tacos to make at home.
