Smart Lunches, a Boston startup created by two moms in 2011, will make your children's lunches for them. With no minimum requirement, you can order lunches once a week or every day, depending on what you need.
"It removes the school lunch anxiety for parents because we ensure that their children get a freshly prepared, nutritious lunch delivered to their school every day," CEO David Morris told CNN.
Smart Lunches lets parents specify likes and dislikes, food allergies and any other restrictions for their child. The meals cost around $6 or $7 with snacks and drinks available for an extra fee. They work with local caterers to prepare the lunches, changing the menu daily.
"It's a big variety. We have at least 50 entrees to cycle through," Morris told CNN.
The program is free for schools to participate, and Smart Lunches is currently partnered with 200 schools in Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston and Washington, D.C.
"We're getting anywhere from one to five requests from new schools every week. So we're hoping to expand elsewhere quickly," Morris told CNN.
Smart Lunches is currently only partnered with private schools, parochial schools, camps and daycares. However, the company is open to partnering with public schools in the future.
