As a Parent, where do I start?
1. Incorporate local, healthy foods in meals and snacks.
2. Incorporate local food themes! Small twists on what you're already doing! Activities such as planting seeds in the garden. Making art with vegetables, learning about parts of plants, colors, and math with fruits and vegetables. Have fun and use existing resources!
3. Field Trips to farms!
