Parents are being told not to give children ham sandwiches in their packed lunches.
The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) says schoolchildren should avoid processed meats like ham, salami, hot dogs and bacon.
It says there is "convincing evidence" that eating processed meat increases the risk of bowel cancer.
While there is no specific research on eating the meats in childhood, the charity said the evidence in adults was too strong to ignore.
Marni Craze, children's education manager for the WCRF, added: "If children have processed meat in their lunch every day then over the course of a school year they will be eating quite a lot of it.
"It is better if children learn to view processed meat as an occasional treat if it is eaten at all."
The WCRF is also urging parents to avoid lunchbox fillers that are high in fat and calories.
