Lunchbox: Kylie O'Donnell, 25, securities officer A deli sandwich - red pepper bread with Emmental cheese, honey mustard and salad, accompanied by Diet Lilt
Wednesday 27 August 1997
"Buying lunch from a shop which makes sandwiches while you wait gives you the opportunity to make healthier lunchtime choices," Kellow says. "If you're trying to keep fat intakes down, watch out for speciality breads which contain oil, such as ciabatta and focaccia.
"The fat and saturates content of this meal are a little high, with most being provided by the bread - which contains oil - and cheese. Most people should have less than one third of their calories from fat and one 10th from saturates. However, avoiding butter on the sandwich and having honey mustard instead of mayonnaise helped to prevent fat intakes from being higher.
"Most people should have five servings of fruit or vegetables a day. Although there was red pepper in the bread and some salad in the sandwich this isn't enough to count as one serving. Asking for extra salad to be served would be a good idea and would increase fibre intakes.
"On the good side, this meal is packed with calcium - a mineral needed for strong, healthy bones. The Emmental cheese provided most of this nutrient, and contributed to good amounts of vitamin A".
