The “No Sugar Added” Fruit Cups Will Be Available to All
Dallas ISD’s 160,000 Students During the 2016 through 2017 School Year
DALLAS – November 1, 2016 -- Nu-Health California and the Dallas Independent Unified School District (Dallas ISD) have partnered with the goal of offering healthy food options for students. During the current 2016 through 2017 school year, Nu-Health California’s 100% natural Mandarin Oranges and Pineapple fruit cups will be offered to all students for breakfast and lunch.
Nu-Health California’s fruit-in-fruit-juice 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.
"We are extremely honored to be partnering with Dallas ISD and we thank the district for its support of our products,” said Dmitry Sharin, co-founder of Nu-Health California. “We are confident our tasty Mandarin Orange and Pineapple fruit cups will be well received by all students at Dallas ISD.”
The Dallas Independent School District, located in 12 counties of North Central Texas, encompasses the cities of Dallas, Cockrell Hill, Seagoville, Addison, Wilmer and parts of Carrollton, Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Duncanville, Farmers Branch, Garland, Grand Prairie, Highland Park, Hutchins, Lancaster and Mesquite. The district is the second-largest public school district in the state, and the 14th-largest district in the nation.
Nu-Health California meets the Food Buying Guide 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.
