NEWS RELEASE: Fidelis Care Debuts New Lunchology Menu Offering Healthy and Tasty Snack Ideas
NEW YORK (May 22, 2019) –Healthy snacks for kids is the theme of Fidelis Care's latest Lunchology menu, released today on the health plan's social media channels and at fideliscare.org/lunchology. From crunchy granola bites to fruit-filled ice pops, the new menu features creative, fun, and easy-to-prepare snacks perfect for busy families on the go.
“Snacking is a part of life for every family. For optimum health, kids should incorporate healthy, nutrient-packed snacks between three well-balanced meals a day,” said Fidelis Care Medical Director and Pediatrician, Dr. Lisa Moreno. “One of the most promising areas of focus for reducing childhood obesity is healthy snacking. With our new Lunchology menu, parents have access to tasty and fun snack ideas for the whole family to enjoy.”
