As busy moms, Debbie Blacher and Samantha Gotlib found they had a real need for quick and easy school lunches, but felt a responsibility to provide their children with healthy choices. Prior to the launch of Wholesome Tummies in 2007, an option that combined the two simply did not exist. So it was out of necessity and their belief that the foods children eat should nourish their growing minds and bodies that these two moms were inspired to start their company.
Wholesome Tummies achieves its mission “to make fresh, nutritious and exciting foods available to every child everywhere,” by providing food to children at school in three ways: Delivery of lunches ordered online; On-site, full-service dining programs; and Catering for school events. Meals are cooked from scratch and include a variety of fruits, vegetables and whole grains; in addition, as many ingredients as possible are sourced directly with local farms and farmers to create the freshest, most wholesome meals every day.
This flexible program that makes it simple and affordable to provide students with fresh, healthy and kid-friendly lunches while satisfying parents’ concerns about their children’s nutrition. By delivering a “Healthy School Solution” to schools around the country, Debbie and Samantha hope to change the way American kids eat – and make nutrition fun.
