Chef Cary Neff, culinary consultant for Jenny Craig International, packs tasty, healthy lunches for his own kids. Here are their faves:

  • Layer slices of roast turkey, roast beef or baked ham with a slice of cheese. Smear on a dab of ranch or honey mustard dressing and roll tightly. Slice cross-wise into one-inch sections and skewer to carrot and celery chunks.
  • Bag slices of apples or pears—but rub them with lemon juice first to prevent browning.
  • Pack a quarter-cup of almond or peanut butter in a plastic container with crackers, sliced apples, pears, celery or carrot sticks.
  • Mix a cup of chicken or turkey salad with sliced red grapes and walnuts.
