6th graders, Katherine Li and Mira Mutnick are invited to Duke TIP’s Georgia State Recognition Ceremony along with 7th grade students. Out of 9,599 4th-6th grade students tested in nation, 343 of them achieved a score at or above 99 percentile of their 8th grade counterparts. These students are invited to state ceremonies to celebrate their achievements. Congratulations to Katherine and Mira for this national level achievement. Way to go!
Earlier this semester 11 7th graders were recognized by Duke TIP for their achievements. Please see their pictures here as well.
We believe in minimizing chemicals and pesticides in our children’s foods wherever possible. We strive to use organic products when our foods include any of the 12 fruits and vegetables found to have the highest levels of pesticide residue (the “Dirty Dozen”).
Our kids don’t need to eat foods with ingredients they can’t pronounce. These items belong in the laboratories where they are made, and not in our children’s bodies. We will not include artificial ingredients of any kind in our foods.
We work closely with our corporate nutritionist to prepare foods with the right balance of fat, proteins, and carbohydrates for children’s growing bodies. Our portion sizes and proprietary recipes are designed to reflect the approved guidelines for a child’s daily caloric needs.
At Wholesome Tummies, we adhere to strictest standards for food. We promise to:
- Use natural and organic foods
- Make our foods from scratch every day
- Never use artificial flavors or colors
- Never use MSG or other additives
- Never use high fructose corn syrup
- Never use added trans fats
- Use reduced levels of sodium
- Use reduced levels of sugar
Some additional information about our foods:
- Our meats are free from added nitrates, and we strive to offer hormone and antibiotic free meats whenever possible.
- We use olive oil and canola oils, which have a healthier blend of fatty acids than other cooking oils.
- Minimal amounts of fat are used in all food preparations. We have nothing to hide.
Since we host these emergency response team professionals several times each school year, we ask for your help in sponsoring the dinner provided during their training evening. The total dinner cost is typically $240. If you would like to help sponsor any of this cost for the dinner planned tomorrow evening, please send your student in to school tomorrow with your contribution. Your contribution may be given to the front office and any amount would be appreciated. If we receive over $240, we will designate the additional portion to the next planned dinner and we will update you on this in the next newsletter. Thank you for all you do!
