Fairfield, NJ – January 4, 2016 – With the holidays and the kids at home, it’s a slippery slope to falling back into some less-than-healthy eating patterns.  Of course, it’s ok to splurge a little during the winter break, but now it’s time to re-focus and get back on track with healthier eating routines.

Crispy Green (the #1 Freeze-Dried Fruit retail brand) wants to help!  That’s why they’ve joined forces again with Produce for Kids to help promote their Power Your Lunchbox program in the New Year!  Moms and Dads and anyone who packs a lunch have a place to go to get some healthy lunch ideas from a community of dietitians, healthy eating experts and other moms and dads just like you!  And, when you take the Power Your Lunchbox Pledge, you’ll also help feed families in need.  (In 2016, almost 240,000 meals were provided through Feeding America!)
