A salad lunch from a High Street chain sounds virtuous, but is that always the case?

Here, dietitian Helen Bond considers at five of the best and five of the worst.

358g, take away £5.35, eat in £6.40. Calories, 515; saturated fat, 11.4g; sugar, 4.9g; fibre, 8g; protein, 16.6g; salt, 2g.

This looks healthy, with broccoli, peas, quinoa, avocado, cucumber and cheese, but it has nearly the same amount of calories as Leon’s Thai green chicken curry and twice the fat, with 57 per cent of your daily maximum saturated fat and a third of your daily salt. However, the peas and quinoa provide a third of your daily protein and fibre intake.
