Healthy eating and physical activity solutions for kids

Getting Kids Interested in Healthy Choices

Begin to get older kids interested in current healthy eating happenings and looking for credible information and facts. A registered, licensed dietitian or local State/County Extension agents are great resources.

For younger kids, hearing, seeing and experiencing many different kinds of foods helps to develop an interest in healthy options.

A great place to start that kind of experience is at a local Farmers' market! Create a scavenger hunt to see you can find the great number of fruits and vegetables they have never tried or been aware of before the field trip.
