Healthier Eating Leads to Improved Learning

Crispy Fruit Freeze-Dried Snacks from Crispy Green Make the Grade! 

Fairfield, NJ – August 7, 2019 – The CDC affirms that kids who eat healthy foods at school learn better lifelong eating habits and are readier to learn.1  And, since most kids spend close to six hours a day and consume as much as half of their daily calories at school, parents want to make sure they’re packing the right stuff to keep their kids in optimal learning mode. 

Simple Math  

A healthy lunch + healthy snacks = healthy learning.  So, whether the little one is heading off to school for the first time or one is going off to college, they will need a nutritious lunch; as well as some healthy snacks to fuel their day and stimulate neural activity.   

Power Your Lunchbox (PYL)

Start with a nutritious lunch. Crispy Fruit Freeze-dried snacks are the perfect complement to any healthy lunch.  For those parents who will be packing their kids’ lunches, Crispy Green is proud to be a sponsor of the 6th annual Power Your Lunchbox campaign from Produce for Kids.  “We are proud to one of founding sponsors of this wonderful campaign that promotes packing healthier school lunches, which aligns perfectly with our mission of using food as a force for good,” said Angela Liu, Crispy Green Founder and CEO.   

The PYL campaign is growing exponentially since its inception with more parents making the promise to pack a healthier lunch for their kids. Parents love the wide variety of creative and delicious lunch options that the program offers (you’ll never ever run out of ideas of what to pack). Plus, you’ll be self-assured that you’re providing a healthful lunch your kids will actually enjoy!   

Healthy Snacks to Ignite Learning 

Make sure students have a bag or two of Crispy Fruit Freeze-dried fruit snacks in their backpacks to provide a healthy boost and keep those neurons firing.  This one-ingredient, no-sugar-added snack will keep them energized. From pre-schooler to grad student, this snack satisfies! 

Packing along real fruit that snacks like a chip to school, cheerleading try-outs, Drama Club, soccer practice or any other extra-curricular activity will make it easy for the kiddos to stay away from other, less healthy snacks.
