I’m a middle school teacher and full-time mom. What free materials are available to incorporate fruits and vegetables in our school curriculum and at home?
We offer a number of free activity sheets, recipes and nutritional information on our website, https://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org, under Get Kids Involved section. Because we are a non-profit organization, we are not able to send free, promotional materials from our main office. Additionally, you may want to check out our extensive online catalog at www.pbhcatalog.org. There you will find colorful posters, exciting games and informative brochures to make teaching healthful eating habits to your students as easy as eating 5 A Day! All of our items are modestly priced to simply cover printing and distribution. Included in our catalog are our kid-friendly Color Way Creative Pockets Kits. These educational tools make learning about fruits and vegetables fun for young children. Children can learn the benefits of eating a variety of fruits and vegetables every day, using color as their guide to nutrition and healthy eating. They also promote teacher-student and parent-child interaction with take-home components and taste-testing scenarios. These kits would be an excellent starting point for you. Feel free to check them out on our catalog website.
