Freshii Inc., the fast-growing health and wellness brand, is fuelling students across North America with their School Lunch program. The newly launched program continues to further the brand’s mission to change the way the world eats –including (and maybe most importantly) the next generation of eaters. With a menu of nutrientdense, crave-worthy bowls, wraps and salads, there is no compromise for students or parents.
Instilling healthy habits at a young age is critical – and Freshii knows that nutritious lunch options are not always available to students. Building an affinity for these healthy habits can help promote optimal growth, prevent childhood obesity and enhance brain development in the classroom.
That’s why Freshii now offers a School Lunch Program with a nutritionist designed menu to fuel growing bodies, perfectly balancing great taste with proper nutrition. And at an affordable price point, Freshii is well on its way to curbing lunch bag letdown and the return of half-eaten lunches.
Freshii’s Lead Nutritionist, Andie Shapira, thoughtfully developed the kid-friendly menu and is incredibly passionate about the initiative. “The school lunch menu will provide the nutrients needed to fuel students’ days,” she says. “Slow-burning carbs like brown rice and quinoa provide growing bodies with fiber, which helps to stabilize blood sugar, while healthy fats like avocado will keep kids fueled all afternoon. There’s no high-and-crash that you might see with less-than healthy options.”
Students can choose from a menu of wraps, bowls or salads, all adapted from the well-loved Freshii menu. The whole-wheat Cobb Wrap is packed with avocado, romaine, eggs, cheddar, tomatoes, corn and Greek yogurt ranch, while the Rainbow Bowl touts a colorful mix of quinoa, carrots, cabbage, mango, edamame, cherry tomatoes and honey Dijon dressing. These, along with the rest of the items, offer a powerful punch of taste and nutrition. And, true to the brand’s core menu, Freshii will continue to accommodate students’ specific dietary needs, like gluten-free or vegetarian.
