Savvy entrepreneurs are cracking open the door to the grammar school lunchroom with something many parents can’t get soon enough: healthier lunches.
From New York to San Francisco, nearly a dozen companies are getting better-for-you lunches into the hands of students. Some sell online, some at school and one from a Manhattan storefront.
School lunches are big business. In public schools they often are controlled by unions and federal subsidies, primarily the $7 billion-a-year National School Lunch Program, which covers about half the 54 million public school kids. The lunches rarely include fresh fruits and veggies at a time when 17% of children ages 2 to 9 are overweight, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
Besides fresh fruit and veggies, their lunches include organic or natural foods without trans fats, additives or preservatives. At $4.50 to $7.40, they also cost up to three times the price of the typical school lunch.
