Poor eating habits result in obesity among children. Children now eat fewer vegetables and fruits than in the past. Through nutrition and gardening activities, “Eating From the Garden” hopes to increase consumption of fruits and vegetables. With help from area partners and volunteers, attendees will get to learn a lot of exciting things about gardening, garden safety and how to eat healthy.
