Health Tip: Vary Your Child's School Lunch

(HealthDay News) -- If your child is tired of the same old sandwich, try spicing up lunch with more creative fare.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says fun alternatives to school-lunch sandwiches include:

  • Roll lunch meat inside a wrap, using pita bread or a tortilla in a fun color.

  • Wrap a slice of deli meat around a slice or stick of cheese.

  • Stack the usual sandwich toppings on crackers, instead of bread.

  • Create a salad with greens, cheese, nuts and beans.
