What our customers are saying!

This has been a good chance for some children who may not have the opportunity at home to try these healthy treats. It has been wonderful hearing a child say "Wow! I never thought I would like that! May I have more?
This program is a fabulous method to expose children to many different types of fruits and vegetables. It makes a difference! Teacher modeling is important. They watch everything I eat
The healthy snack program is wonderful. Some of our students who would not try anything in the beginning and by the end they were enjoying tasting things like spinach, starfruit, broccoli,etc
I love the Healthy Snack Program!! Every year I witness the children who say "Oh, I don't like that!" I respond "How do you know if you don't try it?" After they try it, they exclaim "I like it!"
Very well done! The choices were well thought out and the packaging was very teacher/child friendly.
I love the information cards and pictures of the fruit and vegetables!
Great program, regardless of the food,the kids really seem to enjoy the variety

Healthy Snack Program for Elementary Schools

 

Research has shown that children who eat a healthy diet perform better in the classroom.  

A new study published in the British Medical Journal found that increased consumption of fruit and vegetables positively influences mental well being.  According to the study, these benefits include positive mental well-being such as "optimism, happiness, self-esteem, resilience, agency autonomy, and good relationships with others."

Bause Catered Events provides local, fresh fruit and veggie snacks for the classroom.  Our program includes education snack cards for the Teacher which highlight child friendly nutrition info, history and growing information.  We deliver classroom portioned fresh snacks with plates, napkins and utensils, organized and consistently, September through May once a week to your school.
