Bring on the Breakfast Baskets

We wanted to add a new concept to our grab and go breakfast to make things more exciting. We started planning some different types of breakfast baskets -- yogurt with apple dippers, fruit dippers with yogurt dip, sliced apples, etc. We wanted these packs unique from our regular grab and go and will offer these once a week. The students loved the idea and welcomed some additional choices.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The biggest challenge was that we used a plastic container and it took up too much space in the trash cans. We decided to use our #2 size of boat and will use that in the future. Everything will fit and the students can still see the items. The only downfall is they don't stack as well, but we want to make our plans work so we are willing to do what it takes.
