4 Best Lunches for Weight Loss

Roast Beef and Gravy

240 kcal 11 g fat (4 g saturated) Sodium 625 mg

A few slices of roast beef, made from lean beef, provide protein at minimal fat and calories. 

Since cafeteria gravies are always "instant", they only contribute a little sodium to the meal.

Chili with Shredded Cheese

300 kcal 12 g fat (4 g saturated) 570 mg sodium

Hard to imagine, but a bean-laced bowl of red delivers your daughter fiber and disease-fighting antioxidants in addition to protein to keep her full and attentive all day.

Grilled Chicken Sandwich

280 kcal 10g fat (2g saturated) 550 mg sodium

The cafeteria's most popular item's nonfried counterpart is excellent. Instead of mayo, try ketchup, mustard, or barbecue sauce. Your kid may like the added produce.

Tater Tots

150 kcal 7 g fat (1 g saturated) Sodium 200 mg

Cafeteria Tots are baked instead of fried to reduce calories.
