For many busy parents the act of packing your kid’s lunch has changed from an act of love to a nagging morning chore. As parents, it is difficult not to see this daily activity as just another item on our long list of things to do. Every parent has the desire to provide their kids with the most nutritious meals possible while also giving them meals that they are happy to eat. Fortunately, the crew at The Lunch MOB has created a solution to keep kids healthy and happy while also taking out the hassle for busy, overwhelmed parents.
The Lunch MOB prepares food that is freshly made everyday. The very best ingredients are used in all meals so that a healthy school lunch delivery system is available to parents, their kids, and schools. Local private schools in the Orange County area are partnering up with this popular startup because of its well-known reputation. Through its online service parents are able to make sure that food allergies, likes, and dislikes are taken into account when ordering the meals their kids will eat throughout the week. Parents also have the ability to order food for the entire week or for any given number of days. It’s up to the parents to decide on the rate of food delivery to each child. The Lunch MOB recently released a brand new app (on Android and iOS), allowing parents to order meals for their kids anytime, anywhere. Forget to pack your kid’s lunch? Not a problem, pull out your phone or tablet and order your child a lunch on the go.
The owners of The Lunch MOB, Jonathan and Aileen Bonuan, explain that there are benefits for all those that use The Lunch MOB as a solution to school lunches; the parents, their children, and the schools. Parents are able to avoid the daily chore and hassle of preparing school lunches, children get to enjoy fresh and highly nutritious food that actually tastes good, and schools don’t have to deal with a typical lunch program.
According to Jonathan and Aileen, The Lunch MOB relieves parents from the daily chore of creating school lunches or relying on school lunch programs to give their kids what they need. This provides peace of mind to many parents who worry about whether or not their child is getting the nutrients they need. Schools also benefit from this program as it provides an easy and healthy school lunch delivery program on a daily basis. Jonathan and Aileen take it a step further by providing a percentage of the proceeds back to the schools, allowing a win-win-win for everyone.
The Lunch MOB started with a love and passion for food and healthy eating. It began about two years ago when as a father to two growing toddlers, Jonathan, began noticing the challenges of putting together lunches for his children. In the beginning, he thought putting together lunches for his kids was an easy chore that could be accomplished with little hassle. He quickly realized how monotonous the chore was and how much of a hassle it became to find and implement healthy lunches for his kids on a daily basis. Jonathan recalls the struggle stating, “I was packing the same “vanilla” lunches every week. While my kids weren’t directly complaining, I knew they were wanting more!” Jonathan became more and more concerned about his growing kids and their nutritional needs. This led him and his wife on a mission to find more options and choices for healthy-conscious meals that his kids would actually love to eat.
Aileen, a middle school math and science teacher, rallied with Jonathan to help find a solution to this daily struggle. She quickly worked with Jonathan, and together they were able to turn their idea for healthier and more delicious lunches into a business. The passion Jonathan has for the well being of his own children made it an easy decision to leave his 20 year long career in engineering to pursue and develop The Lunch MOB. Jonathan and Aileen knew they weren’t the only parents struggling to provide their kids with deliciously healthy meals while dealing with the everyday stresses of work and life. Eventually the idea of The Lunch MOB came to life and it is beginning to positively affect the lives of parents, children, and schools.
The Lunch MOB program allows parents, and more importantly kids, to choose from many different varieties of healthy lunches. They say that even the pickiest eaters will certainly find something they love in this program. There are over 55 entree choices to choose from that are healthy and made daily with fresh ingredients. This provides kids the freedom to choose from a wide variety of meals and gives parents the peace of mind that quality ingredients are being served to their children. The Lunch MOB is quickly growing in the Orange County area and is becoming the healthy school lunch delivery program that private schools have been looking for.
Currently, The Lunch MOB offers its services to daycares, camps, private, and parochial schools. Unfortunately, there are numerous schools that fail to offer healthy lunches to their students. This has become a common occurrence because many schools can not substantiate the expense and overhead involved with offering such a program.
It’s good to know that there is a healthy school lunch delivery program like The Lunch MOB available for us busy parents. Programs like this give parents and their children the opportunity for a healthier and more satisfying lifestyle.
