Sunrise Soya Foods, Canada's leader in traditional and innovative tofu and soy products, is thrilled to announce the official launch of its community based Super Squeezies School Donation Program. Focused on the Metro Vancouver area for its initial launch, the School Donation Program offers free Super Squeezies Omega-3 DHA Pudding Tubes for student events and programs with a dedication to healthy lifestyle choices.
Thrilled with the incredible feedback and excitement from the initial trial, Sunrise is excited to now offer this program to an expanded number of students and organizations in their community. Super Squeezies, Sunrise's latest product, is the first dairy-free pudding in a tube and has been selected as a finalist for this year's Canadian Grand Prix New Product Award(i). Made using Canadian non-GMO soybeans, each tube is packed with Omega-3 DHA, important for brain, eye and heart health. Super Squeezies are gluten-free, lactose-free and cholesterol-free and contain no artificial colour, flavour or preservatives.
Introducing nutritious food options and encouraging healthy eating is a challenge for BC schools. The World Health Organization identified a health-promoting school environment as one of five key strategies for addressing the growing trends in obesity, as children consume 30% of their daily calories at school 1. With the recent attention to the fact that obesity rates in BC children have almost tripled in the last 25 years 2, Sunrise is excited to be able to offer this program as an option for Metro Vancouver schools committed to promoting healthy lifestyles.
"The Super Squeezies tubes were a fantastic treat for our culinary nutrition unit and they helped us eliminate concerns for our students with dairy and gluten intolerance. The kids enjoyed both the Chocolate Fudge and Strawberry Banana flavours out of the fridge and frozen from the freezer! These convenient snacks showed the kids that healthy eating is also delicious," says Shirley Wong, Culinary Instructor at Windermere Secondary School, Vancouver. "We were delighted to be a part of Sunrise's School Donation Program trial and appreciate the generosity of Sunrise in providing a healthy, nutritious snack for our students at Windermere."
