Sprouting Healthy Kids is a food discovery area featuring activities for children based on food and nutrition education. Parents enroll their children in our Junior Sprout Club and each participant receives a personalized membership badge and a healthy snack provided by farm vendors. In 2016 activities included a bee day with a local beekeeper and bees, a dairy day, produce scavenger hunt, Meet the Farmer BINGO and a name that fruit or vegetable game. Over 300 children between the ages of 2 and 12 are currently enrolled.
We need your help!
In 2017 PSFM aims to expand and broaden Sprouting Healthy Kids to make a lasting impact in more children’s lives through their food choices. For every $2 you give we will give a Junior Sprout a voucher to use to purchase produce from our market vendors.
