While the new school year is often filled with the unexpected, from adjusting to changing schedules and workloads, to making new friends and trying different activities, Boar’s Head Brand® believes what goes into a sandwich should not be a surprise. With an unwavering commitment to quality, Boar’s Head, one of the nation’s leading providers of premium delicatessen products, takes the second-guessing out of what’s really going into lunchboxes by offering quality products parents can trust.

Trust plays a significant role in the food choices made by parents, especially when it comes to children’s lunches. A recent survey conducted by Boar’s Head Brand and the Serious Eats website found the top reason parents pack their kids’ lunches is to ensure they have a healthy lunch (62 percent). Boar’s Head has a long standing commitment to offering only the freshest, best-tasting meats and cheeses, making trust at lunch making time one problem they do not have to solve.

To help eliminate surprises and provide a school lunch that parents feel good about and kids love, Boar’s Head Brand shares delicious ideas to make lunchboxes the envy of the lunchroom:

  • Think Outside of the Slice: Swap sandwich bread for a stack of crackers. Kids will be excited to find all the ingredients needed to build Maple Honey Turkey Breast and Apple Cracker Stacks during lunch.
  • Thanksgiving in September: Boar’s Head Ovengold® Turkey lets families experience the taste of a Thanksgiving turkey year-round. Certified heart-healthy, preservative-free, low in fat and rich in protein, it is great for lunchtime at school or at the office.
  • Create a Scene: Use cookie cutters to create sandwich shapes that spark the imagination. Bring back T-Rex with a dinosaur shape or dive into the ocean with a fish cookie cutter.
  • Sweeten up that Sandwich: Boar’s Head Maple Glazed Honey Coat™ Turkey, a tender, extra lean turkey breast great for children who crave something sweet, gets its flavor from 100 percent pure maple syrup and golden honey. A sweet tasting, certified heart-healthy choice, parents can feel good about giving kids.
  • Leave a Love Note: Add a special midday note with encouragement for an upcoming quiz or presentation. A few words go a long way.
