As many schools are scaling back their implementation of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, Georgia is providing incentives to schools that are working to serve better food to their students. Research shows that children must be exposed to vegetables 10 to 12 times before they will eat them on their own. Programs that increase this exposure in new settings will help young people develop healthy eating habits that they will carry with them well into adulthood.“We know that even our youngest learners need to start understanding why healthy food choices and exercise lead to a path of a lifelong health and well-being,” said Bobby Cagle, Commissioner, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. “That is why the Dole Food Company and Lieutenant Governor Cagle’s Healthy Kids Georgia Program are going to make a real difference as they recognize Quality Rated child care programs that are committed to making health, nutrition and physical activity a priority. Public-private partnerships like this play a vitally important role in helping us meet our goals of nurturing Georgia’s youngest children, keeping them safe and healthy, and enriching their lives.”
