Mood Boost

Studies have shown that foods we eat can have a direct correlation not only on our physical well being but our mental well being too.


Through Mood Boost we are teaching students how certain foods affect their moods in the areas of Alert, Calm, Confident, Happy, Smart, and Strong.


At each school we host a program launch followed by six weeks of new, fun menu items with cool swag each day for students who give the featured foods a try!


We're making our way to each school so keep a lookout!
