Amazin’ Raisins Smart Snack Compliant In School Lunch Cafeterias
Amazin’ Raisins have officially been named “Smart Snack Compliant” by The Alliance For A Healthier Generation. A stringent certification process based upon the product’s ingredient statement and nutrition facts panel is used for determination. Compliance is monitored continually to ensure each listed product stays up to date with the stated requirements. Promoting healthier foods in our nation’s school lunch rooms is a mission that will pay dividends for generations and generations of our youth. Once kids are invested in these healthy eating programs it will be much easier for them to develop healthy eating habits and the ability to sustain these healthy habits throughout a lifetime.
The Smart Snacks in School regulation was enacted by the USDA to begin the 2014-2015 school year. It states all food sold at school during the official school day are required to meet certain nutrition standards. Recent studies show students are now eating 23% more fruits during the lunch period under the new standards.
Amazin’ Raisins are a perfect addition to the Smart Snack program with our NO SUGAR ADDED patented flavor infusion process. Served in a sealed 1.3 ounce bag each package equals 1/4 cup of dried fruit. 1/4 cup of dried counts as 1/2 cup of fruit meeting the requirements of the Smart Snacks in Schools regulation. Amazin’ Raisins are available in 5 mouth watering flavors: Strawberry, Orange, Peach, Sour Lemon and Sour Pineapple.
