Healthy Crunch Launches First Ever School Approved® Snack Line
Serving healthy snacks to children is important to provide good nutrition and to support lifelong healthy eating habits. One Canadian company has made it its mission to create better-for-you foods — Healthy Crunch has just launched the first School Approved® snack line for kids.
What is a School Approved® product? It’s a snack that is free of major allergens; that is made in a gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free facility; and that is low in sugar, and high in fibre.
This comes as welcomed news for parents who are looking for healthy alternatives; especially since COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of a nutritional full-rounded pantry. And, you'll be able to quickly spot the label so you know you're purchasing a healthy alternative for your family.
"Many of the snacks we're used to seeing, lack the nutrients our bodies need, and are filled with sugar. Our School Approved® line has taken this white space and filled the gap with delicious alternatives — everything is dietician and chef-approved," says Founder, Registered Dietitian and Chef Julie Bednarski. "This label makes it easy for parents to identify better-for-you choices and feel confident about what they are feeding their families."
The new School Approved® line includes:
Granola Bars: Healthy Crunch Granola Bars contain 1 billion GanedenBC30 probiotics per bar, the first time a probiotic of this kind has been used in a granola bar for kids within Canada. This is also the first granola bar in Canada to have only 2 grams of sugar per bar. Each bar includes one serving of fruits and vegetables, is allergen-free and is School Approved®.
Seed Butters: Healthy Crunch Seed Butters are Canada's first and only keto-certified and School Approved® nut-free spreads — the chocolate flavour is the first time a nut-free chocolate spread has been introduced to the market. Seed Butters are allergen-free, School Approved® and only contain 1 to 3 grams of sugar per serving.
Chia Jams: Healthy Crunch Chia Jams are the World's first and only keto-certified jams to hit the market. Chia Jams are naturally sweetened with only 2 grams of sugar per serving. Chia seeds provide extra protein, fibre and omega-3 fats.
This is not the first time Healthy Crunch has launched a healthy food initiative for kids. Last year the company launched Canada's first allergen-free Trail Mix that is peanut-free, tree nut-free and made non-GMO project verified ingredients.
