FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SNACK PROGRAM

Ithaca, NY

Many adults told us that children would not eat raw vegetables without dip. Other’s told us there was no way we could get kids to eat raw kale. Still others told us that kids will still choose junk food over fruits and vegetables. Well, all we can say is: Eat Your Heart Out! Click here to read some awe-inspiring stories that may even bring a tear to your eye if you care deeply about children’s health.

 

Corning Painted Post Area School District

Food Service Director Chris Wallace won a competitive grant from NYCHSF. The competition was stiff, but Chris agreed, for a grant of $4,000, to offer a hot cereal bar for breakfast, a plant-based entrée every day at lunch, create healthy a la carte times with names based on popular children’s literary characters, such as Amelia Bedelia’s Bodacious Berry Bowl and Curious George’s Banana Pop (which had sunflower butter spread on bananas, rolled in granola, popsicle stick inserted, and frozen), and present our Wellness Wakeup Call program each day.
