Beyond The Blandwich: Healthier Doesn’t Need To Mean Boring

For students, lunch is a time to cut loose and chow down. But for school foodservice operators, it’s your chance to get kids refueled for another half-day of learning. The best way to do this? Healthy foods — parents’ favorites, but not students’ first choice.

The good news is that healthy doesn’t need to mean boring. Take your sandwiches from bland to wha-bam!, with natural cheese slices. Not only are they every bit as delicious and creamy as other sliced cheeses, but natural cheese also delivers added protein, calcium and vitamin D—nutritious bonuses to support all-day learning and growth. It all comes naturally, too, helping you move the larger “better for you” and “clean eating” trends into your cafeteria. Just don’t forget to call out “natural” on your menu and score brownie points with moms and dads.

Explore more tastes and play up the health halo using Bongards natural cheese slices. They’re perfect in your build-your-own sandwich bar. So while your students will dig having the option to build their own sandwiches and wraps, you can be confident they’re getting the necessary nutrition to take on the rest of the day.
