The Sandwich Showdown is a fun, creative way to teach kids about healthy eating. The event is part of Amy’s Bread Chef Sandwiches for Good, a charity sandwich program featuring top chefs. Chef Galen’s April sandwich is the All-Star Turkey Cheddar Melt  and will benefit After-School All-Stars (ASAS), which offers enrichment activities for kids in low-income communities. Sandwiches are sold at all Amy’s Bread locations.

 

Afternoon all stars

Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. Healthy lifestyle habits, including healthy eating, can lower the risk of becoming obese and developing related diseases. Schools can support students’ efforts to eat healthy by implementing policies and practices that support healthy eating and by providing opportunities for students to learn about and practice these behaviors.
