Healthy Organic Kids
We are proud to have been working with Healthy Organic Kids!
Below is an excerpt that was taken from the Healthy Organic Kids website outlining a little bit about their mission philosophy. We think that they’ll be fantastic partners in our quest to bring the highest levels of nutrition and variety to our students.
My six year old son has been complaining about how bad the food was at his school since he was able to express himself. At home, he tastes and eats many things we put in front of him. He eats broccoli, chili, pasta with pesto sauce and most every fruit he’s ever tried. He doesn’t like spicy food or sweet food (outside of desert of course). My point is he’s a little picky but he will try new foods. More than anything he likes food with flavor. It’s pretty funny when a kindergarten kids says, “this needs salt and pepper.” Unfortunately; his school food was so bland and so bad I had to start making his lunch. Now he gets a peanut butter and jelly or a turkey sandwich every day. He’d rather have the same thing every he knows he’ll like, versus nothing at all!
Our friends kids were having similar experiences at local day cares and schools. What we determined was simple; our kids want to eat tasty and healthy food like they do at home. Our kids came home starving every day because they didn’t eat lunch! They only ate their afternoon snack and the fruit at lunch.
What’s the most important thing at our kids lunch time?
They eat it! Simple right? Actually it is not simple, but not too difficult either. Give the kids delicious food that contains only ingredients you can actually pronounce. Why can’t kids have healthy and delicious food every day? Now your kids can have what they need and deserve. Healthy Organic Kids delivers just that, every day. I feed my kid our food. I believe your kid will like it too.
