Sprout Foods, which offers chef-inspired, nutritious organic foods, announced today the launch of Sprout Rise, its first-ever collection of wholesome, delicious food for busy families who don't always have time to sit down for breakfast. The Sprout Rise Organic Breakfast Foods—three differentiated lines of smoothies, fruit and granola mixes and multi-grain crunch bites—are USDA-certified organic, loaded with healthy fiber and protein for energy, and served in portable packages for busy, on-the-go families.
Each of the breakfast foods in the Sprout Rise collection is made with real fruits, vegetables and grains, without preservatives, fillers, additives or artificial colors or flavors. As always, Sprout has packaged the breakfast smoothies, mixes and snacks in convenient and portable packaging that can be tossed into a backpack or purse and taken wherever you go.
