The first day of school is right around the corner for many-- and kids who bring their own lunch to school, aren't necessarily getting a healthy meal.
A new study finds less than one-third of packed lunches meets government standards for school cafeteria meals.
Only a quarter of lunches included even a sandwich, and most lunches lacked a protein, like yogurt, cheese, or peanut butter.
One in four kids had sugar sweetened beverages in their lunch, but only a third packed fruit.
Experts say replacing cookies with fruit, and switching to whole grain bread are good ways to ensure your child is getting a healthy lunch.
