Leave it to the talented fresh food team at Publix to roll out a medley of ready-to-eat meals just for kids. Set to launch the last weekend in July, the five fresh meals consist of an entrée, two sides and a drink, for $3.99.
“Our customers look to us to provide meal solutions, and finding nutritious meals for their children is no exception,” said Maria Brous, director of media and community relations at Lakeland, Fla.-based Publix, which has 1,020 stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee. “Whether as a solution to back-to-school meal planning or for families on the go, our new Publix Deli kids’ meals are the perfect solution to the question of ‘What’s for lunch or dinner?’”
Among the featured selections:
—Chicken tenders: Publix Deli chicken tenders on a honey wheat roll, mini carrots, kid’s yogurt, and a fruit drink
—Ham sandwich thins: Publix tavern ham on a wheat sandwich thin, mini carrots, kid’s yogurt, and apple juice
—Peanut butter apple wrap: creamy peanut butter with apples in a multigrain wrap, string cheese, mini carrots, kid’s yogurt, and a fruit drink
—Peanut butter rolls: creamy peanut butter on a honey wheat roll, string cheese, apple sauce, mini carrots, and a fruit drink
—Turkey rolls: Publix oven-roasted turkey breast on a honey wheat roll, an apple and grape packet, mini raisins, and organic white milk
The deli team at the Lakeland, Fla.-based grocer worked with its in-house registered dietitians to ensure each meal was balanced, wholesome and nutritious. The meals are made and packaged daily in the store’s deli departments and can’t be customized.
