Packing lunches can be mundane, but from Mediterranean options to coconut water, innovative food companies are making it easier. These companies and other

back-to-school lunch tips are featured in this week's segment of "The Lempert Report Innovation Series," a weekly video series featuring innovation in the food world.

Sponsored by Tetra Pak US, the videos are found online at The Lempert Report's YouTube Channel and on Tetra Pak US consumer Web site

"Sandwiches are a staple, but it's the snacks that keep kids going," says Phil Lempert, CEO and editor of The Lempert Report. "More food companies now offer healthy, convenient, and kid-friendly options, creating a win for the child and a win for the parents."

Lunch innovations include :

>>Wild Garden Hummus in the original Tetra Classic Aseptic, the iconic triangular packaging; in addition to a healthy and filling snack, the carton keeps the hummus fresh

>>Mediterra Nutrition bars have savory flavors that include Sundried Tomato/Basil/Capers and Olive/Walnut/Chives; an alternative to sweet snacks, the bars are rich in vegetable content, but low in calories, sodium, and sugar

>>Vita Coco Kids created naturally fruit flavored coconut water, a great alternative to give kids nutrition, flavor, and less sugar

>>Lempert also suggests freezing Juicy Juice 100% Juice boxes to help keep lunches chilled

"The Lempert Report Innovation Series" is available online for consumers and food industry insiders. Throughout the video, Tetra Pak Tips provide insight about the products, packaging, and trends.
