WHOLESOME TUMMIES, NATIONAL PROVIDER OF HEALTHY SCHOOL SOLUTIONS, LAUNCHES IN GREATER CHICAGO
Greater Chicago parents will soon have an easy option for ensuring that their children eat healthy at school, thanks to a new healthy school solution that will launch in Chicago in January, 2013, company officials announced this week. Wholesome Tummies, which is headquartered in Orlando, Florida, is a fresh food company dedicated to changing the way kids eat, starting with school lunch and will now be available here.
Jennifer and Michael Bychowsky spent the majority of their professional lives in the corporate executive world. Michael was Director of Software and Technology for Motorola and Jennifer was Director of Corporate Travel and Event Planning for a large consulting firm in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. They discovered Wholesome Tummies and were sold on the opportunity right away.
“Opening Wholesome Tummies of Greater Chicago gives us the ability to help ‘one child at a time, one school at a time’,” said Bychowsky. “This is a worthwhile mission – not only to feed kids healthy and nutritious foods, but also to educate them on making the right food choices that last a lifetime.”
Jennifer is passionate about practicing healthy eating at home for her own family. Being obese as a child, it is important to Jennifer to prevent other children from being exposed to the unhealthy influences and food choices that she was given as a youngster.
“We are delighted to welcome the Bychowskys to the Wholesome Tummies family. Jennifer and Michael are driven and capable business owners who are deeply passionate about improving food quality in local schools,” said Debbie Blacher, CEO and Co-Founder of Wholesome Tummies. “Our grass-roots movement is ideal for communities like Greater Chicago where concerned parents demand healthier, tastier choices in school.”
Wholesome Tummies was founded by two working mothers concerned about the choices their own children were given at school. They founded the company based on their mutual commitment to feeding youngsters a variety of delicious, nutritious foods and establishing healthy eating habits from the start.
“We believe it is every child’s birthright to have access to fresh, exciting, and nutritious foods free from artificial and processed ingredients,” said Blacher. “This epidemic of childhood obesity is very real but it can be corrected by helping kids make better food choices in the places they live and learn.”
Wholesome Tummies offers schools a comprehensive Healthy School Program that includes access to fresh foods and exciting school lunch menus, fundraising and farm to school initiatives, and culinary and nutrition education. The purpose of the program is to create and sustain lasting change in the eating habits of participating students.
The new Greater Chicago franchise is the five-year old company’s eighth location to open since it started franchising in 2010. Wholesome Tummies has locations throughout Florida, and in Atlanta, Georgia; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Columbus, Ohio with several others scheduled to launch in the months ahead.
