Start the Year Right with Healthy Crispy Fruit Snacks from Crispy Green!

Make These No-Sugar Added Snacks Part of your New Year’s Resolution  

Fairfield, NJ – January 07, 2021 – Embrace the best version of yourself in 2021 with a healthier lifestyle! As people continue to face health challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic, Crispy Green, makers of Crispy Fruit freeze-dried fruit snacks, believes (aside from good hand-washing and social distancing practices) a balanced diet, low in added sugar and carbohydrates, is the best way to bolster one’s immunity to help ward off potential illnesses, an ideal New Year’s Resolution.  

According to the Centers for Disease & Prevention people with underlying health conditions are more prone to serious complications arising from Covid-19. Leading comorbidities include diabetes, heart disease, obesity and chronic kidney disease. Studies from the CDC show type 2 diabetes as a leading risk factor. One UK study of 61 million medical records, found that 30% of Covid-19 deaths had diabetes, with twice as many having type 2 diabetes vs. type 1.  

Crispy Green believes a healthy lifestyle and diet as put forth by the recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans from the CDC is a great place to start planning your Healthier New Year. The guidelines recommend restricting calories from added sugars to less than 10 percent of total calories per day. Eating more vitamin-packed foods with fewer added sugars, less saturated fat, sodium and avoiding trans-fat is a great way to maintain a healthy weight and bolster your immunity.  

Reboot, Renew, Refuel 

Fruit is part of a healthy diet, packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Crispy Fruit is pure fruit, nothing else–no added sugar, clean single ingredient, Non-GMO and under 60 calories per serving! Crispy Green captures the nutrients and flavor of delicious, ripe fruit and freeze-dries them to the perfect crispy texture for a delicious AND healthy grab-n-go snack. “Our snacks not only taste great and are easy to incorporate into a busy lifestyle, but they’re also guilt-free because they contain no added sugar,” said Angela Liu, founder and CEO of Crispy Green. “We love that fact that they are the foundation to people’s healthy diets and could be helping to bolster their immunities.”     

Crispy Green’s healthy lifestyle website, Smart Lifebites is packed with information to help you start planning a healthier 2021. It features the latest in health information, nutrition tips, fitness trends, family, travel, recipes and more. This month Smart Lifebites features an inspirational story of a Crispy Green staffer who transformed her life by adopting a healthier lifestyle. And if you’re looking for a little fun, you can take a quz called “What’s Your Flavor” on www.crispygreen.com, and receive a surprise discount on your favorite flavor of Crispy Fruit!

Healthy Lunches and Snacks Essential Wherever Kids Are Getting Schooled

Crispy Fruit Freeze-Dried Snacks from Crispy Green Top School Supply Lists!

Fairfield, NJ – August 11, 2020 – Planning for back to school this year is even more daunting than ever. Many parents don’t even know yet where their kids will be learning as schools are still trying to determine the best solution during this critical new era of COVID. So whether your little ones or up to college-age kids will be going to school or learning from home, one thing remains constant—they will need to have healthy lunches and snacks to fuel their day.

The Healthy Learning Formula

You don’t have to be a math teacher to understand this simple equation:

Healthy lunch + Healthy snacks = Healthy learning.

So wherever the kiddos are learning this year, parents need to pay close attention to what they’re packing in their lunches OR what they’re stocking up in their pantries. Crispy Fruit Freeze-dried fruit snacks are the perfect grab-n-go snack to throw in their backpacks …OR the perfect grab-n-stay snack to munch on during online lectures.  This one-ingredient, no-sugar-added snack will keep kids energized wherever they’re learning.

New FDA Guidelines

 One major area of concern for parents is the amount of added sugar their kids will be consuming. And for good reason, particularly when you consider the risks of obesity and Type 2 Diabetes, currently rising in children according to the CDC[1]. On their own, these conditions pose serious health issues, but are also among the underlying health conditions that place individuals at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. The FDA has also updated their guidelines when it comes to added sugar. The new Dietary Guidelines, which are due out by the end of 2020:

It advises Americans to restrict added sugar to no more than 6 percent of total calories, down from 10 percent. Added sugars make up on average 13 percent of our daily energy intake coming primarily from several foods. “Nearly 70 percent of added sugars intake comes from 5 food categories: sugar sweetened beverages (SSB), desserts and sweet snacks, coffee and tea (with their additions), candy and sugars, and breakfast cereals and bars,” the report says. “Evidence suggests that adverse effects of added sugars, particularly from SSB, may contribute to unhealthy weight gain and obesity-related health outcomes.”[2]

Power Your Lunchbox (PYL)

Start with a nutritious lunch. Power Your Lunchbox has donated 1.3 million meals to families in need through Feeding America. This year, they’ve added United Fresh Start Foundation to support children’s accessibility to fresh fruits and vegetables. So, whether parents will be packing their kids’ lunches OR serving them at home, there’s great information and nutritious lunch ideas they can check out at the 7th annual Power Your Lunchbox campaign from Produce for Kids. 

“Crispy Green has been supporting this worthwhile program since it began in 2014. Our missions are in perfect harmony as we strive to promote healthier snacking for kids and anyone interested in leading a healthier lifestyle. We celebrate our partnership and continue our journey to Using Food As A Force For Good™.”

~Angela Liu, Crispy Green Founder & CEO

Fairfield, NJ – May 5, 2020 – Like many consumer brands, Crispy Green, makers of Crispy Fruit Freeze-Dried Snacks, has delayed and modified its spring campaign plans due to COVID 19. However, as the country begins slowly opening up for business, Crispy Green is also thoughtfully moving forward with its Crispy Green Go Campaign.
