Kraft Heinz is working on rolling out two of the popular prepackaged lunches as part of school lunch programs this fall.
In a email on March 14, Jenna Thornton, the director of external Communications & Brand PR for Kraft Heinz, confirmed that school administrators can buy the Turkey and Cheddar Cracker Stacker and the Extra Cheesy Pizza Lunchables for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year.
Both options have been brought up to meet the National School Lunch Program guidelines.
The NSLP program is a federally assisted meal program in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It helps provide free and reduced-cost lunches to millions students in need across the United States.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, which oversees the federally assisted school meal program, is currently considering changing its school food guidelines to reduce added sugars and sodium levels in school-provided lunches.
