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.

Crispy Green GO!

Makers of #1 Freeze-Dried Fruit Snack Promote Healthy, Active Lifestyle Via Spring Campaign

Fairfield, N.J. – March 21, 2019 Angela Liu, CEO/Founder of Crispy Green (makers of Crispy Fruit Freeze-dried fruit snacks) and avid outdoors enthusiast, is encouraging Crispy Green fans to “Get out and go!” Whether it be jogging, hiking, biking, or strolling, spring is in the air, and it’s time to get in the “Go” mode! Angela’s passion has always been about choosing an active, healthy lifestyle, which is also one of the founding pillars of the Crispy Green brand—healthy portable fruit snacks for people on the go!

Even minimal physical activity on a regular basis can bring health benefits. A study from the University of Utah backs this up, “… fewer than 5 percent of American adults today achieve the recommended level of physical activity in a week according to the current physical activity guidelines. Knowing that even short bouts of ‘brisk’ activity can add up to a positive effect is an encouraging message for promoting better health.”[1]

A recent article in The Guardian, “Five Ways to Move More—Without Going to the Gym,” states that getting about 2 hours of moderate exercise per week can stave off a host of medical issues:

It means you can cut that exercise pie any way you like, even just a minute or two at a time. As little as five to 10 minutes of high-intensity incidental activity will make a significant dent.”[2]

That’s why (just in time for warmer weather), Crispy Green is promoting to consumers a healthier lifestyle through more “Go” and less “No”!  For instance, when your little one wants one more piggyback ride, don’t say “No”… say “Go”! Or when your neighbor invites you to take a walk with her, don’t say “No”… say “Go”!  Or when your BFF wants you to sign up for a new yoga class, don’t say “No”… well, you get the picture!

And Crispy Fruit freeze-dried fruit snacks are the perfect grab-n-GO snack to take with you wherever you go. Whether traveling, enjoying outdoor activities or just getting through a busy day, Crispy Fruit is a convenient, satisfying way to grab nutrition on the go! There are seven great flavors to choose from:  apple, banana, mango, pear, pineapple, tangerine and cantaloupe. With under 60 calories per bag, NO added sugar or additives, and the delicious flavor of pure fruit, Crispy Fruit freeze-dried fruit snacks are the PERFECT “Go” snack.

“We recently updated our packaging to reflect the true essence of our products with more vibrancy and energy and without compromising the taste and quality,” Liu said. “We hope our product fuels their fun as much as it fuels their healthy lifestyle!”

In an effort to create some excitement about this campaign, Crispy Green will be offering a special opportunity to share some “Go” inspiration by sharing a “Crispy Green Go” video with their friends. Upon sharing the video, a special e-newsletter signup invitation will be offered along with a $1.50 off store coupon.  More details will be shared soon on social media. #CrispyGreenGo!
