New Aurora Natural Line Provides Students With
a Healthy and Nutritional Snack Choice

Stratford, CT – Ah, the famous “Freshman 15.” You know, those 15 pounds gained during freshman year when college students, many away from home for the first time, indulge in sugary, fatty and unhealthy foods that are nothing like the wholesome and balanced foods they got at home. Most students make these choices simply because that what’s available to them. Unfortunately, because of this, many students don’t get the appropriate nutrition they need for their hectic lifestyle. Aurora Products, Inc., has a quick, convenient and, most importantly, healthy solution to this growing dilemma.

Aurora Products, Inc., a leading provider of branded All Natural and Organic dried fruits, nuts, trail mixes and granolas, has introduced the new Aurora Natural line of Grab & Go healthy snacks to fuel the demands of today’s busy college lifestyle. College convenience stores shelves are overflowing with snacks loaded with less-than-optimal fats and sugars making them no healthier than eating a candy bar. Students deserve a healthier choice and now they have one. The new Aurora Natural line of Grab & Go snack bags is a great option for students because they are as affordable as a candy bar and can be easily thrown into their backpacks while traveling from one class to another.

“Serving healthy snacks to students is important for providing good nutrition and supporting healthier eating habits. It will help prevent students from heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity. We care very deeply in helping students live this healthier lifestyle,” said Stephanie Blackwell, founder of Aurora Products.

The Aurora Natural line offers 12 different items, packed in 4 to 6 oz. bags that provide students with just the right amount of snack… not too much and not too little!
