Packing your child’s school lunch can be a chore — especially if you’re trying to make it as healthy as you can and have them like it.
The following sandwich recipe — from and tested by Kraft Foods — takes only five minutes to make and is a good source of fiber and protein as well as being low in fat.
Checkerboard Turkey Sandwich
