Pick a Better Snack aims to help children eat more fruits and vegetables. Nutrition educators teach 30-minute interactive lessons once a month in kindergarten through 3rd grade classrooms. Students learn why fruits and vegetables are so good for their bodies, where and how fruits and vegetables grow and tasty ways to eat them.
