True North Granola

It’s that time of year again…back to school! While parents celebrate and kids groan, we’ll be here for all of your back to school snack needs. One of our favorites come from our friends at True North Granola out of Brattleboro, VT. True North Granola was started in 2006 by two lifelong educators, Ingrid and Franklin Chrisco. Unsatisfied with the taste and quality of the granola options they found in  grocery stores, they  launched True North Granola Company from their home. Their intent was and remains to create healthy granolas that are never “too sweet,” that are low in carbs, sodium, sugar, and that are rooted in healthy fats.

Throughout their educational careers, Ingrid and Franklin saw first-hand the link between a child’s eating habits and their ability to learn. Children who eat well have more energy, longer attention spans, and are in better physical health than children who eat unhealthy foods. Their granola is the perfect balanced snack for growing and active kids. Now retired from the school systems, Franklin and Ingrid continue to address childhood obesity through True North Granola by working with local schools to provide free and healthy granola to students. True North has been donating granola to after-school programs in the business’ hometown, Brattleboro, Vermont, for the past five years. As the company continues to grow, so too will its support and promotion of healthy eating in schools.
