Healthy sack lunches for school kids

Poudre Valley Health System
For immediate release: August 20, 2011

Gary Kimsey 970.495.7427| 970.689.2512

Poudre Valley Health System will launch a program August 22 to help parents make sure their children get the healthy nutrition they need in the sack lunches they take to school.

The health system will offer a daily list of healthy sack lunch ideas, with recipes, through its Twitter account (@pvhsnews) and Facebook, as well as its website.

The sack lunch menus, all tasty as well as healthy, were developed by nutritionists working for PVHS and the local Coalition for Activity and Nutrition to Defeat Obesity, commonly called CanDo.

A collection of the sack lunch menus will also be available on an ongoing basis at the website.

PVHS is also asking parents to submit healthy recipes for consideration to be included among the sack lunch ideas.

Recipes can be submitted through the health system's Facebook site or website. Submittted recipes will be reviewed by the health system's nutritionists and CanDo.
