How do you get kids to eat the fruit and veggies they’ve grown in the garden? Need ideas for recipes, age appropriate cooking activities, or food related books? You can use your existing school garden to enhance nutrition education for children and youth and promote the consumption of fruits and vegetables. Come to our GENE class to learn how. Activities are drawn from curricula for grades K-7, and are all available for free online. Participants will learn tools and strategies for involving children and youth in safe food handling and preparation in a garden, kitchen, or classroom. We will also explore how to plan for an edible harvest and touch on Garden to Cafeteria programs.
