What to Expect From a Kid’s Lunch Delivery
It’s no secret that heading back to school is sometimes a challenge for both kids and parents. This year, there are even more reasons for parents — and students — to feel a bit more stressed and anxious than usual.
However, many parents are relieved that the one thing they don’t have to worry about is making sure their kids are getting a delicious lunch they’ll actually enjoy eating. If you haven’t hopped on the kid’s lunch delivery bandwagon yet, you’re missing out!
What is a kid’s lunch delivery service and how does it work? Keep reading to learn all the details about this life-changing service!
What Is Kid’s Lunch Delivery?
School lunch delivery is a service provided by Lunch MOB. It’s an easy way to get healthy meals delivered to your child at their school during their normal lunch period.
This is an excellent alternative to packing a brown bag with PB&J and potato chips or giving your child cash to buy a traditional school lunch.
How Does it Work?
Signing up for Lunch MOB is super easy! All you need to do is find out your child’s school code and then register for the service online.
Once your account is set up, you can take a look at the school’s menu calendar and place your child’s lunch order. You can order lunches all at once or a few at a time, but you’ll need to place your order by 12 p.m. two days before the day you want the lunch delivered.
Menus are available two weeks before school starts and go out for six weeks, making it very easy to plan ahead. There’s also a great mobile app that’s perfect for parents who are always on-the-go!
Once your order is placed, there’s nothing more for you to do! During lunch period, your child will go to the designated lunch line and tell the helper their name and grade level. The helper will look up your child’s order and give them their pre-ordered lunch. It’s that easy!
What Kind of Foods Are Delivered?
Every pre-ordered meal comes with one selection from the Entrée Menu or the Sandwiches and Wraps menu and one serving of a fresh vegetable or fruit. You can also add on a cold beverage like juice, milk, or bottled water and a variety of healthy snacks for a small upcharge.
Some of the options you might find include BBQ Chicken Sliders, a Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich, Fish Soft Tacos, Baked Chimichangas, and even California Rolls! Snack offerings often include items like Zucchini Pizza Bites, Hummus and Pita Triangles, BBQ Kale Chips, Carrot French Fries, or Chocolate Coconut Granola.
We suggest letting your kids help pick out their meals. This will ensure that they’re getting foods they enjoy or are excited about trying. It’s also a great way to encourage your kids to try new things and give you the opportunity to talk to them about making smart and healthy food choices.
Can You Make Changes to Your Order?
Life can get crazy sometimes, so it’s nice to know that you can change your mind after you’ve placed an order. As long as you make your updates at least 2 days prior to the delivery date, it’s no problem!
Although you can’t make changes after the 2-day deadline, you can still cancel if something comes up. Even if the 2-day deadline has passed, you’ll still get a 75% refund as long as you cancel before 7:30 a.m. on the day of lunch service.
Emergency Lunch Service
Have you ever looked in your fridge and realized you don’t have anything available to pack a lunch? No problem! Lunch MOB also offers an “Emergency Lunch.”
This limited-options menu is available up until 8 am on the day of lunch service. This is the perfect solution for those “Oh no!” moments, saving you the hassle of rushing around for a last-minute solution.
Is Lunch Delivery Really Worth It?
Our kid’s lunch deliveries are delicious and healthy. We prepare our meals with fresh, high-quality ingredients sourced from local farmers and grocers. They’re made fresh every day, don’t contain any preservatives, and are never frozen.
When you order school lunch delivery you can be confident that your kids aren’t eating high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, MSG, or artificial colors or flavors.
You’ll also enjoy the convenience of not having to deal with packing a lunch every day and the peace of mind that comes with knowing your child is getting a lunch he or she will love!
