This newsletter is a monthly look at a fruit or vegetable that is grown during that particular month. Harvest of the Month is designed to motivate and empower students to increase consumption and enjoyment of a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables and to engage in physical activity every day.
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, behavior and more.
Harvest of the Month gives us the opportunity to support healthy food choices through increased access and consumption of fruits and vegetables as well as encourage daily physical activity. It presents a strategic opportunity to bring together the cafeteria, home and community to promote a common goal and healthier habits for students. Please look below to find the monthly family newsletter that highlights the fruit or vegetable of the month. Together with your students look for the month’s fruit or vegetable on the school menu, at the grocery store, produce stand or your local Farmers’ Market!
