Martinez, GA -

Becky Gilmore, Head of School at Augusta Prep says, "Kids need food, good food to learn."

And that's exactly what they're getting at Augusta Prep.

Wholesome Tummies is bringing healthy food right to the lunchroom.

Becky Gilmore, Head of School at Augusta Prep says, "Augusta Prep is proud to be the first partner with them on this on-site, fresh-from-scratch program which we think will provide for our students, not only healthier food, healthier choices, but also part of the education."

But does this healthy food taste good?

Becky Gilmore, Head of School at Augusta Prep says,"They seem to like the food, there's lots of choice and they're very happy."

Spaghetti and meatballs, broccoli soup, and meatball parm sandwiches-not from packages, made by hand daily.

Becky Gilmore, Head of School at Augusta Prep says,"It tastes better because it doesn't have artificial ingredients. It doesn't have MSG. It doesn't have artificial flavors. It's all from scratch, made fresh, that day."

The kids I spoke with agree. They say the food tastes as good as it looks.

Becky Gilmore, Head of School at Augusta Prep says, "Part of the program of Wholesome Tummies is providing kid-friendly and delicious foods that are healthy."

All of this delicious looking and tasting food has half the fat and salt compared to fast food restaurants.

Becky Gilmore, Head of School at Augusta Prep says, "It satisfies your nutritional needs and therefore you can eat a lot less and get the same kind of nutritional satisfaction and fullness."

For the leaders of Augusta Prep education doesn't stop in the classroom, it continues in the lunchroom, too.

Becky Gilmore, Head of School at Augusta Prep says, "It's a move to provide our students learning for life in ways that they will need and this is just a piece of it. Health and nutrition for well being is a really important central point."
