The Importance Of
Nutritional education gives students the opportunity to build healthy, life-long eating habits, learn important food skills, and develop a healthy relationship with food. With the guidance of a great nutrition education program, children can learn these valuable healthy lifestyle habits while they’re young, carrying them through the rest of their lives.
The benefits of developing nutrition and food literacy skills are endless. However, with the lack of nutrition education programs, these skills are still not being practiced enough—leaving children unable to develop critical healthy eating habits.
diets high in fibre & fat
On average, 40% of the daily calories that children and adolescents consume come from added sugars and solid fats. 
Not Enough Fruits & Veggies
Over 90% of children and adults do not meet their total daily vegetable intake recommendations. 
Student health is strongly linked to their academic success, and the academic success of students is strongly linked with their health. Therefore, helping students stay healthy is a fundamental part of the mission of schools. 
Nature Fresh Farms created the Growing Minds educational program to inspire healthier eating habits in kids.
Growing Minds is a part of Nature Fresh Farms’ plan to increase food literacy across the nation by providing online educational resources that teach everyone more about food, nutrition, and cooking.
With this program, we hope to build an educational community where children are able to develop healthy eating habits and lifestyle choices from a young age. This will set these children up for continual success and enable them to inspire a future generation of fresh thinking.
