Helping schools and parents take a leadership role in improving kids’ health is what Wholesome Tummies is all about. Since starting the company in 2007 we have led the charge for healthy school lunches and now serve over 100 schools across the country, thanks to the support of our amazing customers.
But school lunch is just the tip of the iceberg.
Lunch is only one meal out of 3 daily, not to mention all the snacks consumed in between. To truly win this battle against childhood obesity we need to look at ALL foods accessible to our children, and ensure superior levels of nutrition across the board.
Inside the home, parents are in control of food sources and can easily eliminate empty calorie foods from their child’s menu. At school, however, we lose that control. Although ordering from WT Café assures that your child receives a fresh and nutritious lunch, your school may still unwittingly provide easy access to unhealthy fare – and send confusing, mixed messages as a result.
By filling vending machines with junk food, rewarding good classroom behavior with candy, or ordering fast foods for school events, your school is sending negative food influences to your child — un-doing all the hard work you’ve put in to instill healthy habits at home. Wouldn’t it be nice if we were all on the same page?
That’s why in 2013, Wholesome Tummies and WT Café are kicking it up a notch!
For us, this year is about more than lunch….It’s about a Movement. A movement to provide schools and parents with access to fresh, from-scratch foods in ALL aspects of the school’s food program. A movement to make a real and lasting change to our children’s health and well-being. The movement starts with the introduction of some exciting new programs inside the school and the home:
School — By offering fresh food choices at catering school events and meetings, vending machines and school stores, athletic events, and classroom birthday celebrations, WT Café can help schools maintain a consistent commitment to student health throughout the school day.
Home – By offering nutritious and convenient family meals from our rotating seasonal menu, WT Cafe will provide busy parents with a great way to maintain a consistent commitment to family health.
If you desire further improvements in the overall food program at your child’s school, please let us know today! We will work together with your school to solidify their commitment to the health of your children. By role modeling the right behaviors and providing the right foods, your school can further their education mission and take another bold step in fighting our country’s health crisis. Now that’s how to create lasting change.
Join the Movement!
