A Closer Look at… My Fruity Faces® Edible Stickers Encourage students to choose more fruits and vegetables when they go through the breakfast or lunch line by offering them My Fruity Faces. These edible stickers can be placed by you or by students onto fresh fruits and vegetables to engage kids and encourage them to have fun and be creative with healthy food choices.

The stickers are all-natural fruit flavored, with additional flavors expected to be introduced soon. They are allergenfree, gluten-free and Kosher-certified. The My Fruity Faces stickers come in different shapes and sizes, including full faces, face parts and accessories, for a wide range of combinations.
