*NEW ITEM* Dietitian Approved Lunch BoxesPosted on August 30th, 2017
What Is A Dietitian Approved Lunch Box?
Our Reasor’s Registered Dietitians partnered up with the Reasor’s Deli & Culinary Team to bring you a healthier upgrade (but NOT a more costly upgrade!) to our existing lunch boxes. While our previous lunch box options will still be available, now you can enjoy this new option to help you and your family make healthier decisions while on-the-go!
To qualify as a Reasor’s “Dietitian Approved” lunch box, each item in the lunch box has to meet the team’s general and nutritional criteria (specifics can be found here). Each of our “Dietitian Approved” criteria are based upon the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and you can rest assured our dietitians have your back when it comes to the quality and healthful content you expect!
Dietitian Approved Lunch Boxes are assembled at each of our Reasor’s locations, retail for $3.50 each, and they will contain each of the following:
- 1 Sandwich on Whole Wheat Bread (either ham or turkey with a slice of cheese)
- 1 Mustard Packet
- 1 Mayonnaise Packet
- 1 Can LaCroix*
- 1 Musselman’s Applesauce Pouch*
- 1 Single Serve Bag of Skinny Pop OR Smartfood Delight Popcorn*
*Flavors may vary
How Is The Dietitian Approved Lunch Box A Healthier Upgrade?
There are many benefits of the Dietitian Approved Lunch Boxes! Here are a few highlights:
- Whole wheat bread is a whole grain option and helps us make half of our grains whole like the USDA’s MyPlate (and your Reasor’s Registered Dietitians) recommends!
- Ham and turkey are both excellent sources of lean protein, and we recommend focusing on sources of lean protein during most meals of the week!
- LaCroix is a hydrating, naturally essenced beverage free from sodium, sugar, and artificial sweeteners!
- An applesauce pouch counts as a full serving of fruit and contributes to our daily goal for fruit and veggie consumption!
- Popcorn is another source of whole grains to help provide key nutrients, crunch, and flavor to an after-meal snack!
Your Reasor's Registered Dietitians have launched *Dietitian Approved Lunch Boxes*! These boxes will soon be available at ALL Reasor's locations, so stay tuned & look out for these healthy grab & go meals!
