It’s kid-tested and approved.
We tested Fun to Eat Fruit™ in ten New Hampshire elementary school lunchrooms. Our research teams observed the children's eating habits at lunchtime in each school’s cafeteria.
During the first of two observations, we provided plain apples for students to eat with their meals. The children weren’t keen about the apples and tossed most of their uneaten fruit. During the second visit to the same schools, we served Fun to Eat Fruit™ apples featuring hearts, smiley faces, and snowmen.
Our informal study showed that serving Fun to Eat Fruit™ actually increased apple consumption by more than 50% when compared to school lunches offering plain apples.
Want to instill healthy eating in children’s lives? Add some adventure to their snack times? Fun to Eat Fruit™ is a creative way to help children eat healthier. We customize the freshest apples, pears, lemons, limes, oranges and more with standard, fun images with kid-appeal or you can use your own image, logo or saying.
