Our veggie medley dazzles students with a variety of colors! Not only is a mix of colors more appetizing, but mixing it up delivers a broader range of vitamins and nutrients. While a cup of celery may not be appealing to kids by itself, having it as part of a colorful mix is an enticing way to meet the fruit or veggie requirement.
Served in a cup, our vegetables become a fun finger food that can be eaten leisurely while visiting with friends increasing the chance for consumption and health benefits. This medley also provides fiber that keeps your digestive system happy and is naturally low in calories.
School lunch is proud to offer this colorful veggie medley as nature’s treat.
