    End-of-year school celebrations don’t have to include sugary snacks! Students enrolled in our Healthy Buddies program know that healthy treats are not only good to eat, they are good for you!

    This year, thanks to a generous donation from Foodtown, Healthy Buddies students were treated to healthy “snack packs” at their end-of-year party. The packs contained two pieces of fruit, a nut-free granola bar and a bottle of water — all “Go” foods, that is, foods children are encouraged to eat almost anytime. Foods heavier in sugar and fat content are called “Slow” and “Whoa” foods under the evidence-based curriculum shared through Healthy Buddies.
