Harvest for Healthy Kids
Good food habits develop early, and tend to last a lifetime. A local Head Start program has partnered with Portland State University’s School of Community Health to introduce young children to locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables. The program is called Harvest for Healthy Kids and has found initial success, finding that the students “are more likely to ‘like’ certain vegetables than their peers who did not participate in the program.”
Did you know that carrots come in a number of different sizes, colors, and flavors, and are certainly not adequately represented in the typical supermarket. Farmer Shari Sirkin of Dancing Roots Farm talks about some of the lovely carrots she grows, and a new carrot variety for her, Shin Kuroda, that she is harvesting now.
