Westside Market NYC Makes Lunches-to-go Healthier
To coincide with National Nutrition Month in March, Westside Market NYC has introduced grab-and-go boxed lunches for kids. Targeting busy parents concerned about unhealthy cafeteria lunches -- as well as consumers of any age looking to eat better at midday -- the lunches offer a fresh, nutritious and convenient option.
Retailing for $7.99, each lunchbox offers a freshly prepared sandwich made with Applegate ham, turkey or chicken deli meat and Swiss, cheddar or American cheese on white or whole wheat bread; the choice of an apple, pear or orange; two homemade oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip or M&M’s cookies freshly baked on premises; and the choice of apple, orange or grape juice.
The lunchboxes are now available at Westside’s three Manhattan locations, and according to a company spokeswoman, will be carried past March.
In the past, the family-owned and -operated Big Apple grocer has launched such novel features as a Man Aisle and Dessert Aisle.
