Teachers Influence Life-long Eatings Habits!

Kids who eat healthy foods become adults who eat healthy foods. Educators can use WISE to encourage kids and families to discover fresh, locally grown vegetables and fruits in authentic, developmentally appropriate ways.

WISE delivers three components to education programs.

Food experiences, songs, games, and activities help children explore WISE foods and learn healthy eating in playful ways. Each unit includes.
