WELCOME TO FOODWIZE

“We began to notice a trend in the number of clients reporting that their school’s food wasn’t healthy or that they couldn’t find a healthy option while at camp. We knew that we could make a difference and work collaboratively with schools and camps to help our clients achieve their health goals.”

FoodwizeWe are excited to introduce you to FOODWIZE, a smart and healthy approach to feeding kids. FOODWIZE is becoming the nationally recognized name for healthy food options at camps and schools around the country. Our goal at FOODWIZE is to keep your campers and students eating their favorite foods while ensuring that your cycle menus meet current Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) standards for optimal health.

FOODWIZE was created by a team of Registered Dietitians, along with various consultants including pediatricians, educators, chefs and culinary experts. The FOODWIZE team will review your cycle menus, and then provide you with a complete, clearly outlined, detailed guide with our recommendations, analysis, recipe modifications, and new suggestions custom tailored for your establishment. We also specialize in healthy kid-friendly canteen and vending machine options that even your parents will love! The FOODWIZE guide will be the focal point for use in your kitchen as you place food orders, and plan and prepare daily meals.

We will also give you the FOODWIZE Seal of Accreditation to share with your families. The FOODWIZE seal will highlight your commitment to health and will distinguish you from other facilities.
