Market Day

Does your school participate in the Market Day fundraising?  Ours does.  I've had my first look through the catalog and here are my top healthy choices.

Frozen Veggies that are on the Environmental Working Group's Clean 15 list and have no additional ingredients:
  • Asparagus spears
  • Extra Young Tiny Peas
  • Sweet Corn
Frozen Broccoli
Not on clean 15, but not a dirty dozen either. 

30 Count String Cheese
I am constantly on the border about buying cheese that is not organic.  I only buy organic milk.  If you don’t mind non-organic dairy these seem like a good choice.  I have not purchased myself and the reviews seemed mixed.  Ingredients: Pasteurized milk, cheese cultures, salt, and enzymes.

Tropicana Orange Juice Singles
100% Juice, No pulp,
Oranges are neither clean 15 or dirty dozen
I think since they are in cartons instead of plastic they would be bpa free

9-Grain Orzo Blend
Whole grains and veggies, though not “clean” veggies

Wild Alaskan Grilled Salmon
I as hopeful about this one but saw no icon for the “no preservatives, artificial flavors or colors and no trans fat" category.  The ingredient list includes: cultured dextrose, corn syrup solids, salt, spice extractives, sugar, dehydrated garlic, dehydrated onion, maltodextrin, spices, paprika, natural flavor, sodium phosphates.
