Getting children to eat more fruits and vegetables can be a battle for caregivers, teachers, and parents. How we feed children influences their lifetime relationship with food. This hands-on, interactive session introduces the research-tested curriculum, Learning About Nutrition through Activities (LANA). Easy-to use, flexible, and content-driven, LANA is designed to help preschool children learn to taste, eat, and enjoy more fruits and vegetables. Come away from this session with winning ideas, recipes, activities, and ways to make snack and mealtime a positive experience.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the basic components of the LANA nutrition education program.
  2. Describe three strategies to encourage children to taste and eat fruits and vegetables.
  3. Identify the guiding rules for positive mealtime interactions at school, child care, and home.
