In our weekly Q&A installment, we asked The Greatist Team about their favorite healthy childhood lunch foods. Here’s what they had to say:

Turkey, lettuce, and tomato on whole wheat. For dessert, have to go with peanut butter and sliced apple. — Justin White

I was lucky enough to have a mom that made me lunch every day. Her specialty was a wrap with turkey, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and cheese. It was nothing special, but I remember other kids always wanting to trade their PB&J's or cafeteria lunches for my wraps. —Leah Rocketto

Lunchables. I loved the turkey sandwich one 'cause it always came with a delicious mini candy bar. Plus the pizza one had tomato sauce that was crazy delicious. Heat that thing up & it was magic. — Derek Flanzraich

A whole wheat pita pocket with turkey, cheese, and spinach with a banana on the side. My dad also makes some really amazing chocolate chip cookies made with whole wheat, flax seed, and dark chocolate — sort of healthy, right? — Kelli Kerkman 

Cottage cheese with pineapple chunks! It usually met a few strange looks from my classmates, but it's a favorite healthy snack that stays with me even today. — David Tao

I've always been a fan of English muffin pizzas. They're pretty quick and easy to make, especially in a toaster oven. And they're an easy way to try out different pizza toppings. — Kissairis Munoz

I went through a phase where I'd bring a YoCrunch every day for snack. They come with nutritious toppings like granola, but opening my lunchbox to find one with Oreo pieces was just about the most exciting thing in the world. — Shana Lebowitz

Oh man, I was not a healthy eater as a kid. My parents were of the "their bodies will tell them when/how much/what to eat" philosophy. In general though, you could get me to eat anything if it came with a dip— that includes Dunkaroos, apple slices, and carrot sticks alike.Kelly Fitzpatrick

My mom always packed me a bagel and cream cheese with some awesome minestrone soup! It kept me full all day, and it was super soothing when it was cold outside. — Cathy Zhu
