HMSHost’s Paleo Lunch Box

“The Paleo Lunch Box was created as part of ‘Eat Well. Travel Further.’ This is a health-forward platform HMSHost launched at major airports and travel plazas across the U.S. that features food and beverage choices based on popular health-food trends. Low-calorie, cleaner eating, and wholesome ingredients are not something you would expect to find in an airport or along a motorway, and it’s perfectly packaged to take on a plane or on the go. Travelers don’t have to sacrifice their mindful dining choices.”

It’s not something you see too often from a quick-serve dish; it presents really well, and once heated has a surprise for our guests. You could almost say it’s interactive.”
