Go Wild with Fruits & Veggies!

drawings of fruits and veggies

Go Wild with Fruits & Veggies! is a comprehensive program that encourages students in grades 3-5 to eat more fruits and vegetables and become more physically active. According to the USDA, fewer than 1% of elementary students eat the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables. Poor nutrition affects students’ energy level, ability to learn, and school attendance, and may lead to obesity and chronic disease. More about the research behind Go Wild with Fruits & Veggies!
