Produce for Kids® (PFK) promotes the benefits of healthy eating and supports worthy causes for children.
PFK educates shoppers about healthy eating through promotional campaigns in the produce department of local grocery stores across the U.S. These campaigns combine advertising, in-store display materials, public relations and Internet marketing. Also included in-store and online are fun games and activities for kids and resources for parents.
This could be the first generation of children to not outlive their parents. It is a prolific statement that has ignited a change in America. So, with obesity among children increasing at an alarming rate, it’s more important than ever to teach healthy eating.
By integrating healthy eating into your everyday curriculum, students have a much better chance of making the right food choices. The links to the left are provided to help you enhance your daily lesson plans with fun ideas of healthy eating and healthy lifestyles. They include week planners, a collection of visual aids to post around the classroom, a tried-and-true discipline chart, and helpful websites to whet your appetite!
From now through October 27th, you can help PBS KIDS® by purchasing sponsored products in the produce department at participating grocery stores. As a result of your purchase, our sponsors will make a donation to support PBS’ efforts to provide educational content, resources, and outreach materials to families and educators that promote healthy eating.
