Harvest of the Month
Health and Learning Success Go Hand-in-Hand
Studies show that healthy eating and daily physical activity have a profound impact on the body and mind by improving the ability to learn and comprehend, boosting energy, improving school attendance and changing attitudes and behavior. Harvest of the Month connects with core curricula to give students the chance to explore, taste and learn about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables. It links the classroom, cafeteria, home and community to motivate and support students to make healthy food choices and be physically active every day.
Each month a brief Harvest of the Month Newsletter features a fruit or vegetable, which is the harvest for that month. By clicking on the newsletter link you may view featured harvests or a Harvest recipe. By helping children practice healthy eating habits, you can help improve their memory and energy levels in school. With Harvest of the Month, you can set a positive example and put your child on the road to health and learning success.
