Why is it good for you?
Tuna contains Omega-3 which has two important fatty acids – DHA and EPA – found almost only in marine food such as tuna. Canned tuna is a convenient way to get these nutrient. We then complete our healthy lunchbox with wholemeal bread and vegetables.

The Plan
Clean mixed salad leaves and make the sandwich filling the night before. On Monday morning, all you need to do is to put together the sandwich with tuna filling, vegetables and bread. Put them into a square container and chuck it into your work bag.
