Back to School: Healthy, lunchbox-friendly products

Sep 2019

The summer holidays are coming to an end, heralding in a new school year for millions of children across the globe. The right nutrition is key to learning and parents and students alike will be looking at how they can ensure a healthy, yet convenient, diet that will keep them mentally sharp during the hours spent in the classroom. As consumers become more mindful about their consumption, there is ample opportunity for “back-to-school” lunch and snacking opportunities that fit in with a healthy lifestyle. The key aspect here is the so-called “health halo”: natural, unprocessed products that give parents some peace of mind that they are sending their children to school with the right nutrition.
