Lunchables, the popular prepackaged meals aimed at kids and the time-pressed parents tasked with feeding them, have been a staple on school cafeteria tables for decades. But now, some of them won’t arrive from home in lunch sacks or boxes — the brand is offering a version of the product to be served by the cafeteria itself.
Kraft Heinz, the company that makes them, has developed two styles of Lunchables that meet the federal nutritional guidelines set out for the National School Lunch Program, which provides meals to nearly 30 million kids across the country.
The company says the two offerings — turkey and cheese, as well as pizza — are distinct from the products sold in grocery stores, retooled to increase the serving size and reduce saturated fats and sodium.
