For Generation Z, on-the-go meals are a daily ritual that they value more than their Millennial counterparts. In one Y Pulse study, 66% of Gen Z participants reported on-the-go eating—compared to only 57% of Millennials.¹
With only a limited time available in the lunchroom each day, students value grab ‘n go for their midday meals. Portability is great for notoriously busy Gen Z students, giving them the option to eat before class, before practice, or even on the commute home.
Get in on the trend by making sure your cafeteria and to-go kiosks are full of grab ‘n go options. Go beyond basic with these filling, elevated options students can eat between classes or stash away for later:
Bring a coffee shop atmosphere to your grab ‘n go kiosk! YoGo Cooler coffee-flavored smoothies count as a 1 meat alternate because of their high protein content. Add a lid and compostable straw so students can take them on the go.
With Vanilla, Strawberry and NEW Blueberry Yoplait® ParfaitPro®, you can serve up delicious, portable yogurt parfaits in half the time. Serve in a clamshell or add a lid to a parfait cup to make them portable. Try a few fun, outside-the-box recipes from our Layer Lab recipe book!
Offer all kinds of tasty baked goods like Blueberry and Chocolate Chip Muffin Tops, gooey Cinnamon Rolls and more. Simply place and bake for the fresh-baked flavor and aroma that your students will love. Package them up in a bakery bag so they can save ‘em for later.
With a new school year on its way, now’s the time to get ready for your rush of on-the-go eaters. Get more ideas by visiting our Back to School page today!
