“Show Your Spirit” During #NSLW16
LOS ANGELES – October 6, 2016 -- To recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children it serves every day, Nu-Health California is supporting National School Lunch Week from October 10-14, 2016 by offering a 20% discount off of the company’s 100% natural fruit-in-fruit juice cups’ retail price.
The National School Lunch Week theme, “Show Your Spirit” is all about getting parents, students and school officials to show their spirit for school lunch.
“We are happy to support National School Lunch Week, which helps educate parents and students about all the benefits of a healthy lunch program,” said Dmitry Sharin, co-founder of Nu-Health California. “This is why we are offering a 20% product discount in support of this important program.”
Nu-Health California recently announced a partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) with the goal of offering healthy food options for students. During the current 2016 through 2017 school year, Nu-Health California’s Mandarin Oranges will be offered to all LAUSD students for breakfast and lunch.
Nu-Health California’s natural fruit cups are 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.
Founded in 2012 by Sharin, Arytom Drey and Mike Muchnik, Nu-Health California currently delivers fruit in fruit juice snacks throughout the U.S. and internationally.
The federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides nutritionally balanced, healthy meals to students during the school week. The program, which has been serving the nation's children for over 60 years, requires school meals to meet federal nutrition standards which includes offering fruits and vegetables every day, serving whole-grain rich foods, and limiting fat, calories, and sodium.
The “Show Your Spirit” campaign is made possible by the nonprofit School Nutrition Association. For more information about National School Lunch Week, visit www.schoolnutrition.org/nslw
