Shop-bought sandwiches: The best and worst revealed
Egg mayo, BLT, tuna and cucumber or just good old cheese and tomato - there are so many fillings to choose from. No wonder shop-bought sandwiches are an easy option for lunch on the go, but how healthy are they really?
Us Brits love a sandwich. Two slices of bread, a tasty filling and maybe some crisps, salad or soup on the side - sandwiches make a quick, cheap and filling lunch idea, especially when we're busy with the kids.
Sarnies are perfect for packed lunches, too. There's nothing better than tucking in to a really tasty sandwich while putting your feet up for 5 minutes after a morning of housework and chores.
When we make a sandwich at home, we can keep an eye on what we're putting in so it's diet-friendly - but what about when we pick up a shop-bought sandwich from a supermarket, bakery or high street shop like Boots?
Lots of shop-bought sandwiches aren't as good for us as they seem. Especially when it comes to salt - we found a third of a woman's recommended daily intake (6g) hidden inside some shop-bought sarnies along with lots of other nasties like saturated fat. And even some of the so-called 'healthy' takes on classics still contain lots of calories.
So, what are the best and worst shop-bought sandwiches? Well we've rounded up the most popular sandwiches from Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Tesco, M&S, Boots and Greggs.
