With Better 4 You Meals, the school day just got a bit healthier. Serving the Greater Los Angeles and Bay Area regions, B4YM serves over 40,000 lunches per day. B4YM is excited to work with schools and their students to continue making lunch one of the highlights of their kids’ days.
Better 4 You Meals seeks out the best farmers, growers, co-packers, and vendors to provide your students with a high quality, healthy, and enjoyable lunch. We strictly adhere to the federal National School Lunch Program guidelines and help schools prepare for their state audits and compliance requirements.
Kids love to eat healthy food…but only if it tastes good. Most kids are willing to try new dishes, fruits or vegetables if they are visually appealing and delicious and Better 4 You is constantly seeking the best recipes and ingredients for our meals.
Rarely repeating a hot featured entree on our menu within a single month, we create the variety needed so your students will not get bored with the menu. And when there’s an item that schools tell us they don’t like, we actually listen and work to replace it on the menu with a new item. Some of our non-traditional and very popular lunch items include:
- Ground Turkey Nachos with Whole Grain Corn Chips
- Chicken & Cheese Tamale with Mexican Style Corn
- Baked Penne Pasta with Meat Sauce
- Mexican Chicken Salad Tostadas
- BBQ Chicken Leg with Mashed Potatoes
- Red Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas
- Turkey & Cheese Sandwich on a Pretzel Roll
- Chicken Taco Salad
And lunch servings don’t end there. While we are constantly updating our menu and sampling new items at schools, we also look for new and creative vendor partnerships to keep your students healthy and satisfied.
