Farm to Preschool is a growing movement across the country to bring fresh, nutritious foods from local farms to children in early education and child care programs. Farm to Preschool also includes activities that promote nutrition and physical activity like gardening with preschoolers, field trips to farmers’ markets, and class food preparation and taste testing. This webinar will be an opportunity to hear from Farm to Preschool experts and providers who are incorporating Farm to Preschool activities in their programs.
During the webinar, you will learn about the range of Farm to Preschool activities, get tips and ideas on incorporating Farm to Preschool activities in your program, and find out about the free Farm to Preschool resources available on www.farmtopreschool.org. Whether you are thinking about starting Farm to Preschool activities or looking for ways to expand your current Farm to Preschool efforts, this webinar can help you get a jump start.
Helping children learn healthy habits early, through child care and early education programs, is critical to solving the problem of childhood obesity within a generation. Let's Move! Child Care is a voluntary initiative to empower child care and early education providers to meet 5 goals: increasing physical activity, reducing screen time, improving food choices, providing healthy beverages, and supporting breast feeding.
Marissa Duswalt is the Let's Move! Associate Director of Policy and Events
