Broodje gezond is not healthy

The traditional Dutch roll known as a broodje gezond, or healthy roll, is rarely good for you, according to research by the Consumentenbond consumers union.

The organisation looked at the contents of 14 different rolls, which typically contains ham, egg, cheese and salad. Of those 14, all had too much salt, just three had enough salad vegetables and half had too many calories, the Volkskrant reported on Friday.
