LOS ANGELES – July 20, 2016 – Are you searching for a healthy snack alternative to give your kids at home or at school? If so, Nu-Health California fruit cups are your solution.
Nu-Health California offers a 100% natural fruit-in-fruit-juice cup - a healthy alternative to syrupy fruit cups, apple sauces and sugary drinks. This Kosher, no sugar added fruit cup is unique as it has no colorings, synthetic ingredients, GMOs, preservatives or gluten. Available in 4.5 and 9.0 ounce cups, these on-the-go snacks do not require refrigeration and come in the following flavors: apple, peach, pineapple, mandarin orange and pear.
“We strive to deliver quality, grade-A fruit snacks,” said Dmitry Sharin, co-founder of Nu-Health California. “We package our products in only fruit juice, without any artificial syrups, with the goal of providing healthy alternatives for children. We are thrilled that nutritional directors are as excited as we are to offer our healthy
products at their schools. Students enjoying our fruit servings and giving us the thumbs up is the best feedback we can receive.”
Nu-Health California meets FDA standards for the National School Lunch Program - a federally assisted meal program operating in public, charter, nonprofit, and private schools as well as residential child care institutions. This program provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day.
In addition, Nu-Health California is in compliance with the Smart Snacks in School regulations. These requirements, published by the USDA, are practical, science-based nutrition standards for snack foods and beverages sold to children. These standards encourage schools to offer healthier snack foods while limiting junk foods.
“Our products are nutritious options for kids’ lunchboxes, school cafeteria menus, and vending machines located in businesses and schools,” said Sharin. “The good news for parents is that our healthy fruit cups are also available to purchase in supermarkets and online.”
