FAIRFIELD, N.J., Aug. 16, 2021 /vWire/ — In a recent study from Rand Corp., 84% of parents surveyed said they planned to send their children (ages 5-18) back to school in person this fall.1 Last spring, about 53.1% of K-12 attended school in person.2 So, although it’s not 100%, it’s a big jump and will seem much closer to pre-pandemic numbers. This means that the need for convenient grab-n-go snacks and healthy lunch options will now increase as well. That’s why Crispy Fruit Snacks from Crispy Green should be at the top of parents’ back-to-school lists.

Why Crispy Fruit?

Because Crispy Fruit is 100% pure fruit, nothing else! These clean, single-ingredient snacks retain most of the nutrients of fresh fruit; but just freeze-dried to a perfect, crispy texture so they snack like a chip. With seven delicious flavors (apple, banana, mango, pear, pineapple, strawberry and tangerine), your kids will never get bored with these nutritious, delicious snacks. Parents will feel good about getting more fruit in their kids’ diets and knowing that there’s NO ADDED SUGAR!  Crispy Fruit Snacks are Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Kosher, Vegan and Allergen-Free, so they’re a great option for kids with special diet requirements.

And if your kids are being home-schooled, Crispy Fruit Snacks are a great option to complement fresh fruit. With a 3-year shelf-life, you can stock up your pantry with every flavor and be certain you never run out! So, no matter if kids are going back to school “Old Skool” style, or a hybrid arrangement or 100% home-schooled, Crispy Fruit Freeze-Dried Fruit Snacks make the grade!

Watch the Sugar Intake!

With increased interest in health concerns due to COVID, parents are becoming better stewards of their children’s diets and lifestyle habits. It’s no secret sugar can pose many risks—particularly when consumed in quantities higher than what is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization. Children who consume too much sugar could be at greater risk of becoming obese, hyperactive, and cognitively impaired, as adults, according to the results of a new study.

“Recent evidence shows obesity and impulsive behaviors caused by poor dietary habits leads to further overconsumption of processed food and beverages…A strong association between attention-deficits/hyperactivity disorders and being overweight or obese have also been revealed.3
