We focus on offering a wide variety of fresh foods, but include small amounts of nutrient-rich frozen and minimally-processed foods to boost taste and convenience. Our nutritional guidelines have been developed by a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) and adapted from recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics and Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
With a well-stocked pantry, our plans require shopping for only 20 ingredients per week. Doing less than 20 minutes of Sunday Prep sets you up for the week. Daily lunches can be assembled in under 10 minutes per day. Plus, we offer shortcuts for those ultra busy weeks.
Our meal plans are taste-tested by kids and adults. Do the kids eat everything they taste? Of course not! Do they like things we aren't sure they will? Absolutely.
We believe that all children, regardless of means, should have access to healthy meals. That's why we support No Kid Hungry. They are working to end childhood hunger by connecting children in need to programs like school breakfast and summer meals.
Our vision is to inspire the next generation of healthy eaters while giving parents some relief from the demands of modern parenting. We want to help children appreciate the taste of whole, minimally-processed foods and to understand appropriate portion sizes, without giving up the occasional treat. Our team of nutritionists, recipe developers, and parents is working together to give you an answer to the daily question, “What’s for lunch?”
After spending more than a decade climbing the corporate ladder, balancing the demands of work and family stopped Lauren in her tracks. She left the corporate world to focus on building a more balanced and fulfilling life. Looking at the demands she was facing as a parent, Lauren kept coming back to the dilemma of what to feed her kids each day. By launching Lunch Unpacked, Lauren wants to make preparing healthy lunches a fast and convenient part of every family's routine.
