Fidelis Care Unveils Healthy School Lunch Menu

NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fidelis Care announced today the reveal of the Lunchology Healthy School Lunch Menu featuring unique, easy-to-make recipes created by lifestyle expert Evette Rios. Lunchology: The Basics of Healthy School Lunches, was launched in August and was created by Fidelis Care to provide parents with unique, affordable school lunch ideas that put healthier twists on classic kid fare without too much preparation or stress.

"Helping children choose healthy foods can be a challenge, especially during back-to-school time," said Fidelis Care Chief Medical Officer Sanjiv Shah, MD, MPH. "Choosing nutritious foods for children is important because studies show that a healthy, balanced diet helps kids perform better academically. With the Lunchology School Lunch Menu, we are providing a valuable resource for families to make mornings easier and healthy eating a priority."

Fidelis Care brand ambassador Evette Rios created the content of the Lunchology Healthy School Lunch menu by focusing on healthier, kid-approved recipes that are easy for parents to put together with a fun and creative twist.

"As many parents can attest, kids can be picky eaters, which means the pressure is on to creatively transform healthy alternatives into food the kids will actually want to eat," said Evette Rios. "The healthy lunches included in the Lunchology menu provides convenient options for parents that are fun and enjoyable for children."

To promote the Lunchology menu, Evette Rios will be appearing on numerous media outlets and also hosting a live Twitter Chat on October 26, 2016. Families interested in learning more about Lunchology may visit fideliscare.org/lunchology of follow #lunchology on social media platforms.
