Lunchables are getting a reset and headed to school lunch lines across the country next school year.

According to Kraft-Heinz, the products have been reformulated with ingredients that comply with National School Lunch Program requirements, and two varieties will be available for students at many K-12 schools this fall.

The choices would include a “Lunchables Turkey and Cheddar Cracker Stackers” and “Lunchables Extra Cheesy Pizza” option.

The company said that these options are different from those sold in stores because they have “improved nutrition.”

The announcement for the new option comes as the United States Department of Agriculture proposed new guidelines that would reduce sugar and sodium levels in school lunches across the country.

The guidelines seek to significantly decrease sodium in the meals served to the nation’s school children by 2029, while making the rules for foods made with whole grains more flexible.
