Nutrition Insights

Our turkey is packed with goodness.
So your kids can be, too.

Nowadays, kids have lots of food options to choose. And many of those aren’t the best for them. And though we realize candy and pizza will never go away, it’s important to us at Shady Brook Farms® that students get at least the proper nutrition they need during a crucial part of their day. Lunchtime. 

Turkey comes with its own ingredients that make it great for you.

A better option no matter how you slice it.

Considered a Super Food, turkey is smart protein alternative that’s lower in fat and calories, and is in line with USDA requirements to help prevent childhood obesity. As one of the leanest meats you can eat, a skinless turkey breast can feature:
