The National Restaurant Association said Sysco Corp. has become the exclusive distribution partner for the Kids LiveWell program, an initiative developed by the NRA to provide parents with a larger selection of healthful children’s menu choices. As Kids LiveWell’s sole distribution partner, Sysco will develop recipes to offer to independent foodservice operators across the United States.

“Sysco’s commitment to the Kids LiveWell program and nutrition overall means families will have even greater access to an expanding number of healthful menu options for children,” said Joan McGlockton, vice president of industry affairs and food policy for the NRA. “This is an exciting and significant step in the Kids LiveWell initiative’s short existence and evidence of the entire foodservice industry’s enthusiasm behind healthy living solutions.”
