Organic restaurant franchise Pizza Fusion launches School Organic Pizza Fridays in order to help children and their families make the transition to a healthier diet that can help prevent cancer and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), among other ailments linked to pesticide consumption. Pizza Fusion offers pizza in a way that is both wholesome and delicious.

Children are now facing significant health challenges more than ever, one of those challenged being ADHD. A study published on May 17, in the Official Journal of The American Academy of Pediatrics links ADHD in children to their exposure to pesticides commonly used on non-organic fruits and vegetables.

According to a 2008 Emory University study, switching to organic foods reduces the presence of pesticide compounds in children’s bodies to near-undetectable levels. These studies reaffirm the findings in the recently published President’s Cancer Panel Report: The presence of pesticides in our food increases our risk of disease, and choosing organic foods counteracts this problem.

Children are notoriously picky eaters, making the introduction of organic, healthy foods a challenge. Pizza Fusion strives to make this mission possible for children, their families, and area schools with its organic, all-natural fare, and its innovative School Organic Pizza Fridays initiative. As stated in Cookie Magazine, “With multigrain crusts and organic fresh veggies buried under cheese, who cares if pizza is all they'll eat?”

Parents, teachers, and schools interested in participating in the School Organic Pizza Friday program by Pizza Fusion should contact the company at info@pizzafusion.com.
