It’s Time to Eliminate Harmful Ingredients
This January, EATS is asking the Park City School District to put immediate steps to begin serving meals that are made with healthy, whole, natural ingredients while eliminating ingredients with known health concerns: the “Sinister Seven”.
- Trans fats and Hydrogenated oils
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Hormones and Antibiotics in beef and other animal products where possible
- Added and Artificial Sweeteners
- Artificial Colors and Flavors
- Artificial Preservatives
- Bleached Flour
To learn more about what foods contain these items and why they need to be removed from school lunch NOW, please visit Hungry for Healthy: The Sinister Seven. The Sinister Seven, or Seven Ingredients of Concern, have been outlined by The Life Time Foundation. Learn more at www.lifetimefitness.com.
You Can Do Something About It
We want to feed our children’s bodies and minds so they can perform to the best of their ability, academically and athletically. Good food can bridge the achievement gap, reduce risky behavior and prevent childhood obesity.
