In a perfect world, we’d all carry nutritious, homemade lunches to work every day. But with hectic mornings, busy schedules and empty fridges, about 60% of Canadians often buy lunch at a fast food restaurant. The good news? You can have a healthy lunch, even if you buy it!

The number one tip for a healthier lunch is to enjoy it with water instead of pop, juice or other sweet beverages. You’ll have fewer calories, less sugar, and will stay well hydrated through the afternoon.
