Perfect for lunches!

Get an A(toria’s) in lunch! Whether you’re grocery shopping for your family, or picking up food for yourself, quick and tasty lunch options can help everyone build healthy habits. Some lunches can ensure everyone is eating enough veggies, while others can save you time and get everyone out the door quicker. Still others can add a touch of variety to the same old, same old each day.

Having flatbreads from Atoria’s Family Bakery on hand is a mighty meal solution to get the pickiest of eaters (including you!) saying “I can’t wait for lunch!” These flatbreads are baked with simple ingredients and nothing artificial.

Here are some fun ideas as the kids head back-to-school:

Breakfast all day! Surprise your kids with a breakfast Pita in their lunchbox.

No fork, no problem! Handheld Lavash wraps are an easy lunch option for school or the car.

Power your performance! Fuel your kids for after school activities with a protein-packed Lavash foldover for lunch.

Veg-out! Cold pizza topped with veggies will ensure your kids eat them…maybe they won’t even notice!

Culture Cuisine! Try out some flavors from around the world to help expand your taste buds! We love adding curry into our chicken salad. Perfect for wraps!

Twist on Traditional! Kids love PB&J – try adding their favorite fruit or some granola for crunch. Perfect for a Lavash wrap or on top of Naan.

Build their own! The more kids are part of the lunch making process, the more likely they are to eat it!
