Nutrition events

Fruits and vegetables are an important part of a child's daily diet as they provide essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients for good health. Yet, one quarter of school-age children do not touch vegetables and over one third will eat no fruit during the course of a day.

Help students in your school develop a love for nature's fast food, by celebrating fruits during Apple Crunch in October and vegetables during Go for the Greens in March.

Apple Crunch Go for the Greens

“Enrolling as a Keystone Healthy Zone school has allowed our students to participate in lifetime activities through our physical education and after-school programs.”
