Try Instead: Hot Dog
Take the chili and cheese off the hot dog, and your child's lunch gets a little healthier. With around 250 calories and significantly less sodium than its chili-laden counterpart, a hot dog isn't healthy enough as an everyday staple, but it is the better choice. For the healthiest choice, hot dogs free of mechanically separated meat (MSM) are the best way to go.
