Creator and founder of the company, David Salzman, says “Our custom branded fruit offers parents, teachers, food service professionals, and school administrators a way to positively impact the obesity crisis gripping the youth of America.” The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports one in every three children in the United States is overweight or obese. Salzman developed Fun to Eat Fruit because he knew that adding a fun factor to nutritious food would attract children—and adults—to snack and eat healthy.
One informal study, conducted by the company, showed Fun to Eat Fruit increased apple consumption in 10 N.H. schools by 50%.
