5 worst things to pack in your kid's lunch
1. Boxed kids’ lunches

Kids are often sent to school with pre-made lunch kits because they’re convenient, but nutritionists report these as one of the worst offenders due to high sodium content. The sugary desserts and juices that come inside the boxes aren’t helping either.

2. Whole sandwiches for little kids 

Aside from being high in calories, a leading dietician believes little kids don’t need a whole sandwich and will likely throw out the other half.

3. Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches 

Instead of regular peanut butter, try nut butter spreads without added sugars or hydrogenated oils. Because jelly has a ton of sugar, swap it out for some thin slices of fruit.

4. 'Kid-friendly' yogurts

Just because they’re marketed as a healthy choice, doesn't make it so. These are one of the biggest sources of sugar in the American diet.

5. Fruit snacks

Even when they’re made with 100% juice, a top pediatric nutritionist points out that juice is primarily sugar. Sticky fruit snacks can also get lodged between children's teeth and lead to tooth decay.
