Here’s a predicament any parent can relate to: it’s 1pm on a Saturday. You’ve been at activities and running errands all morning with your two school-aged children. They’re tired, you’re tired, and everyone is hungry. Home is too far to travel to – you’ve still got more things to do after lunch. You all need to eat, but you want something convenient that everyone will love and which is good for you.
What are your options? You can go to the drive through for some fast, cheap and (generally) unhealthy food, you can stop at the convenience store for a hot-dog, you can spend an hour and a decent amount of money at a restaurant, or, now, you can go to one of Made Foods’ eight conveniently-located stores! Because luckily for you (and your kids), Made Foods has launched a new kids menu. Not only can you enjoy a fresh, locally-sourced and chef-prepared healthy meal-to-go, your kids can too.
The new kids menu is broad and offers a range of meals and snacks. Meals sure to please even the pickiest eaters include the Superhero’s Sliders Lunchbox (a turkey slider, veggies & humus, and a brownie bite), the Fiesta Feast Lunchbox (Naan bread, grilled chicken, cheese, mild Made. salsa and apple slices), the Chicken Wrap for Champions (with grilled chicken, BBQ sauce, mozzarella cheese, spinach, red peppers, brown rice and whole grain tortilla) and the Cheese Please! Quesadilla (featuring mozzarella cheese, a whole wheat tortilla, beans, sweet potatoes, peppers and salsa).
Meals are well-balanced, offering a combination of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, proteins and other nutrient-packed foods. And while your kids may hate squash, for example, they won’t even know they’re consuming it in the Squishy Squash Mac & Cheese (with elbow noodles, squash and cheddar cheese) – it’s that delicious!
The snack items will also be a hit. The Treasure Bites – with puffed pastry, grilled chicken, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and fresh herbs – are a tasty and healthy alternative to pizza. They come in snack portion or as a meal with hummus, veggies, cheese and apple. The Ooey Gooey Bread Sticks are another great snack. Made from fresh focaccia bread, garlic butter, herbs and mozzarella cheese, kids will love to dunk their sticks in Made’s homemade tomato sauce.
Portion sizes are perfect for youngsters and can be eaten right away or brought home and used for school snacks, lunches or dinner. Prices range from $4.99 to $7.99 – a steal for such high-quality meals.
And while your kids enjoy their food, you will too of course. Made Foods’ menu of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks and smoothies is chock full of healthy, delicious and wholesome meals, with new, seasonal items being added all the time. Like the Ragin’ Cajun Salad (with Cajun chicken, romaine, corn, black beans, dates, red onion, tomatoes, avocado, feta cheese, peanuts and Made’s homemade lime vinaigrette) and the Bacon Wrapped Turkey Burger (with tomato chutney, greens, focaccia bread, garlic aioli, mustard and sweet potato fries). There’s always something new and delicious on the menu.
Prefer to eat family-style, with everyone sharing the same meal? Made Foods has you covered there too. The Family Feasts are delicious meals for four for just $40. Changing weekly, the Family Feasts for May include the Grilled Flank Steak (May 11-17), Chicken Schnitzel (May 18-24) and Cabbage Rolls (May 25-31) – amazing, hearty meals that will satisfy the entire family.
So, the next time you need to feed your children – and yourself – head to Made Foods. With online ordering and both pick-up and delivery options, it’s a convenient, healthy, economical and delicious answer to your family meal-planning needs. Your kids, and your stomach, will thank you.
