Aramark has launched a healthy snack program for middle and high school students called SnackFactor through which it will offer students more than 150 healthy snack options. These are scheduled to include regular and organic low fat granola bars, cereal bars, baked chips and snacks, animal and graham crackers, yogurt, water, 100% juice and smoothie beverages, fresh fruits and vegetables.
Each has 200 or fewer calories per serving, no more than 35 percent of from fat or 10 percent from saturated fat, 35 percent or less sugar by weight and zero grams of trans fat. They are expected to be made available on the traditional food service line, before and after-school, in the classroom, during state test periods, in grab-and-go kiosks and vending machines.
SnackFactor is an extension of Aramark's Treat Yourself Right initiative, a secondary-grade level nutrition awareness communication program. The products will be offered in conjunction with the company's 12 Spot and U.B.U. Lounge school foodservice branded concepts.
