These healthy sandwich alternatives are perfect for the lunch box -- or the briefcase
Much as you may want to, you can't swing by school at noon every day to make sure your kid isn't trading tuna-on-rye for Twizzlers. It's far more practical (and far less embarrassing) to pack lunches that kids will want to eat.
