FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ZEGO’s new bars launching at Expo West are powered by organic sun-loving mushrooms to help kids be healthy & stay in school.
Feb. 17, 2022, San Francisco. Zego is bringing more peace of mind to parents with its new line of Sunny Day Fruit & Veggie bars for kids. Each bar has 50% of the daily value (DV) for vitamin D from an innovative, vegan, sustainably grown source-organic California mushroom powder.
Best of all, kids report the bars are bursting with delicious apple, cherry, and raspberry flavors, but have no mushroom flavor at all. The bars are also top 9 allergen and gluten free, so they’re safe to bring to school or daycare.
Recognizing their nutrition, novel vitamin D mushroom ingredient, and taste, judges voted ZEGO’s Sunny Day Bars to be a finalist for a Nexty Award at Expo West.
Vitamin D is the #1 nutrient people are seeking to boost their immune system and support their wellness, particularly in light of data showing its importance in helping fight viruses. But many adults and an even greater number of kids have serious vitamin D deficiencies. Raising vitamin D levels can help kids stay healthy and stay in school.
Unfortunately, getting enough natural vitamin D without being outside in the summer sun is difficult. But certain mushrooms, when exposed to sunlight, produce incredibly high levels of vitamin D.
Adding to the Sunny Day Bars’ appeal, they come with ZEGO’s Purity Verification—ZEGO tests them for over 400 pesticides including glyphosate and heavy metals as well as allergens and gluten. And, ZEGO gives consumers complete transparency by linking the test results to the product packaging QR code.
ZEGO’s founder, Colleen Kavanagh, came up with the idea for a delicious, 100% food-based vitamin D snack bar that kids would love during the pandemic. “I wanted to help parents who were seeking ways to keep their kids healthy. Kids may forget to take their vitamins, but they never forget to eat their favorite snack. And, I love that our vitamin D comes naturally from a food, not a supplement.”
ZEGO’s fruit bars have been a kid-favorite for over 15 years when they first were developed by apple and pear farmers in the Pacific Northwest and the USDA. Those farmers are part owners of ZEGO. And, the company still sources fruit from this region, which they think is the secret to the bars’ juicy, bright flavor.
Sunny Day Bars will launch in Apple Cherry and Apple Raspberry flavors in retail boxes of 5 bars in March. ZEGO is also working on an adult version for food service. Contact email@example.com for more information.
ZEGO makes delicious breakfast and snack foods designed to meet most special diet needs. ZEGO is leading the industry by providing transparent Purity Verification for over 400 toxins on its products, with test results linked to the QR code on every package.
A certified B Corp, ZEGO seeks not only to provide consumers peace of mind but encourages them to leverage their power by asking other brands to provide transparent purity verification for their products as well.
