Our Recipe for Healthy Kids

We recommend that schools adopt a program with “No snacks without first purchasing a complete meal”. We have proven success with this approach. Most other food management companies structure programs and a la carte offerings that lead high school students AWAY from complete meals and nutrition.

Unlimited fresh fruits and vegetables, 8-12 choices per day, are included with every student lunch on a self-serve food bar. This is stocked daily with the most popular fruits and vegetables with kids, and with some new varieties to try. It is well documented that student consumption of fruits and vegetables skyrockets with this program. This all-grades, every-day feature is so much more than just offering a salad bar as an option.
