    We know what it’s like when you’re rushing around trying to get everything done, and want to grab something easy but also healthy for lunch. And we often assume that choosing a pre-packed salad over a sandwich is the healthier option. But just how much better are the salads we’re eating? Are they really as healthy as we think, or are there some unhealthy secrets lurking in our salad bowls?

    We took 15 of the most popular pre-packed salads that we have for lunch and rated them from worst to best, ranking one for super-unhealthy, up to ten for the best for calories, fat, sugar ans salt, so you can make better choices next time you’re in need of a quick and healthy lunch.

    To keep our findings fair we have compared the nutritional information per serving. They all come in at different weights, so we’ve worked out the calorie to weight ratios to make it easier for you to make your lunchtime decision.
