CHICAGO — According to the National Peanut Board, the average American child will consume 1,500 PB&Js before graduating high school. While tasty, the average PB&J isn’t the most nutritious option, which is why Egglife Foods, the innovative food company that uses cage-free eggs instead of flour to reimagine carb-heavy foods, is rethinking this iconic schooltime staple – with less carbs and sugar and more protein.
In partnership with actor, Instagram personality and New York Times bestselling author Jenny Mollen, Egglife is sharing a variety of delicious and healthy twists on the lunchtime staple. PB&Js on original egglife® egg white wraps or sweet cinnamon egglife® egg white wraps are simple, delicious, and nutritious – perfect for breakfasts on-the-go, study breaks, lunches, and afternoon snacks. From peanut butter with strawberries to almond butter and tart apples, these unique recipes are sure to be a homerun with kids and parents alike, making lunches more nutritious with a simple swap. The reimagined recipes include:
- Crunchy Raspberry Granola Wrap
- Fruit Chia Pinwheels
- The Elvis
- Sweet & Salty PB&J
- Apple & Almond Wrap
- Peanut Butter Cup Roll Up
Jenny, who is well-known for helping parents take the power struggle out of mealtime through her Dictator Lunches Instagram account – which inspired her upcoming Dictator Lunches September 2022 book release – has teamed up with Egglife to put a special emphasis on solving the age-old problem of school lunch. As a busy mom herself, Jenny is showing parents that every morning doesn’t have to be a struggle and with egglife wraps, parents can get back into their routines and feel good about making their kids a healthy and delicious PB&J.
“I’m all about finding fun ways for my kids to eat healthier, which is why this partnership felt so authentic to me,” said Jenny Mollen. “Egglife provides such a versatile and better-for-you canvas to work from, giving us so many elevated and delicious twists on the classic PB&J to play with. The best part – kids and parents will love them!”
“As a parent, I know the age-old struggle between packing what tastes good and what’s good for you in school lunches,” said David Kroll, Chief Executive Officer of Egglife Foods. “That’s why we are so excited to partner with Jenny, a fellow parent who can relate to that struggle and who has already helped so many families navigate it. This back-to-school, we want to inspire families with creative and better-for-you mealtime solutions with egglife, making the ease back to our busy routines less stressful and more delicious!”
