More Than 300,000 Servings of “No Sugar Added” Fruit Cups Will Be Offered to Students Who Attend Charter/Private Schools in Southern CA
LOS ANGELES – November 18, 2016 -- Nu-Health California and Better 4 You Meals (B4YM) are partnering to offer 100% natural fruit cups to students who attend Southern California charter and private schools.
During the current 2016 through 2017 school year, Nu-Health California will offer more than 300,000 servings of its fruit-and-fruit-juice cups for breakfast and lunch.
The Kosher, no sugar added fruit cups are 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 strongly believe in B4YM’s motto that the one size fits all model doesn’t work for most students and schools,” said Dmitry Sharin, co-founder of Nu-Health California. “This is why we are extremely excited to have our unique fruit cups added to charter and private school’s breakfast and lunch menus with the ultimate goal to offering healthy food options for our children.”
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.
Founded in 2012 by Dmitry Sharin, Arytom Drey and Mike Muchnik, Nu-Health California currently delivers fruit in fruit juice snacks throughout the U.S. and internationally.
