The Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program is a federally funded program which encourages children to try a variety of fruits and vegetables that they may not be familiar with.  The goal of the program is not only to to increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables but also to develop an awareness of the various types of fruits and vegetables available to us.  At the present time, we serve the “snack” on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week.  Please talk to your child about the different fruits and vegetables that they have tried and whether they liked them or not.  Your feedback about the program is appreciated.
