General Mills Foodservice has introduced new Pillsbury Homestyle Mini French Toast for school foodservice operators looking for easy ways to expand nutritious, hot breakfast options with plenty of kid appeal.

The new Homestyle Mini French Toast is made with 100 percent whole grain and meets one meat alternate and one bread equivalent meal requirements in one product. Furthermore, the product contains no high fructose corn syrup, no trans-fat, and less sodium than competing products.

Seventy percent of students cite hot breakfast items as their favorite school breakfast. Pillsbury Homestyle Mini French Toast is easy to prepare, serve and enjoy. Each heat-and-serve ovenable pouch contains eight mini pull-apart French toast slices with baked-in maple flavor.

“Foodservice operators are increasingly looking for ways to serve innovative hot breakfast items that offer both a meat and bread equivalent and are appealing to their students,” said Alyca Judge, K-12 marketing manager, General Mills Foodservice. “Pillsbury Homestyle Mini French Toast combines delicious, authentic French toast taste with the nutrition they are looking for in one irresistible product.”

To make it easy for operators to understand the nutrition credentials, each individual package of Pillsbury Homestyle Mini French Toast features a Child Nutrition Label, a standardized food crediting statement from the USDA regarding meal equivalents/alternates.

Pillsbury Homestyle Mini French Toast is the sixth in a successful line of hot breakfast items that continue to drive student interest and participation in breakfast.
