Cabbage Family Greens
CalFresh Healthy Living Program works with educators in early child care and education (ECE) settings. It promotes seasonal and locally grown fruits and vegetables through the Farm to Preschool Harvest of the Month program.
For February Harvest of the Month, we celebrated the “Cabbage family”. We delivered a Harvest of the Month taste testing/resource kit, including ingredients to make Bok Choy Cole Slaw, Farm to Preschool Harvest of the Month curriculum to 9 ECE sites, including Head Starts, an early learning center, a state-run Preschool and our community partners at the Child Care Council. We also provided Color Me Healthy parent newsletters and other supporting educational materials to the teachers to implement the Farm to Preschool Harvest of the Month curriculum in their classrooms.
Harvest of the Month is a great way to encourage your child to eat more fruits and vegetables at home.
