Nutrition Grants for Area Preschools

Fruits-and-Vegetables-150x150As we enter the last month of summer and begin to think about going back to school, we are excited to partner with 5 area preschools to help them incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into their curriculum. The following preschools have successfully applied for grants from Moore Pediatrics: Chelsea Children’s Cooperative Preschool, Freedom Childcare Center, Lambs of Our Savior Christian Preschool, Little Warriors Preschool and Childcare, and North Star Montessori.  These five preschools are using the grants to engage in a variety of projects from funding a field trip to the grocery store to building a small vegetable garden to creating safe opportunities to try new foods.  Increasing fruits and vegetables in the diets of our children is a public health priority.
