Dr. Pivonka: I would like to become a representative for the fruits & veggies more matters. How can I get involve acting as an agent to promote healthy eating in the school system for children of the elementary age group?
It’s great that you are interested in promoting healthy eating and Fruits & Veggies—More Matters in schools. We develop that can be used with children in the classroom or cafeteria, at health fairs, etc. which you can see here. You could possibly work through the school’s PTA to develop activities around fruits and veggies. March is the first anniversary of Fruits & Veggies—More Matters as well as National Nutrition Month, so it would be a great time to plan activities about fruits and veggies. Additionally, other educational resources can be found here. Thank you for your interest and support.
