Mom, can I have that? Pleeeeeease?! If youve ever gone grocery shopping with a kid, its more than likely youve heard that phrase. Sometimes its for cookies, sometimes its for ice cream and sometimes its for Lunchables. But whats a Lunchable?

Lunchables were introduced by Oscar Meyer in 1988. Originally marketed as a convenience food, they have since become standard fare in many lunchboxes across the country, with varieties such as pizza, nachos, chicken nuggets and ham and cheese. At first glance, Lunchables seem an acceptable alternative to school lunches. After all, the rolls are made with whole grains, theres a fair amount of protein in them and they seem like complete meals. And they are fun to put together; much more fun than a sandwich or soup. But upon further inspection, and while Lunchables appear fun to eat (as the slogans Make fun of lunch or Lunch your tummy right imply), there is actually very little nutritional value to the product.
