  • depends on the ham and cheese. The bread would make a difference to.

  • ~*nope*~... well at least not as healthy as you'd hope it were... and loaded with calories... ham is a fatty meat and cheese doesn't help

  • Healthier than some things, but not really. Ham is fatty, salty and filled with calories. The cheese is processed and the bread would only be considered healthy if it was 100% whole grain.....

  • With wheat bread and mustard instead of mayo, deli sliced ham one of the lean varieties and one slice of cheese, it would be about 300 calories and a protein rich meal.

  • Turkey is better. Lower in fat and sodium. But ham isn't as bad as bologna or pastrami. You can use whole wheat bread and low fat cheese, and throw in some veggies (I like lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and sprouts) to give it a healthy kick. Omit the mayo, too.

  • if it was low fat and make on whole grain bread and eaten in moderation it is not terrible, but ham is NOT the best choice of meat.

  • Watch the sodium count on both. I had to search all over town for reduced sodium cheese, but the ham I use has less sodium than most of the prepared turkey.
