For more taste & more value, pick wild.
With a lot of little mouths to feed every day, schools need tasty, nutritious and versatile foods kids love so they can meet daily nutritional guidelines throughout the year. Frozen wild blueberries are an easy way to help you add one of nature’s most spectacular fruits to a wide variety of menu offerings. No washing, peeling or chopping, just toss them in with salads, hot or cold cereals, baked goods, yogurt, smoothies, pancakes, dipping sauces, chutneys, on pizza, or serve them up by themselves as a delicious and nutritious treat. There is almost nothing that doesn’t taste better when you add wild blueberries.
