Kids Eat Smart Foundation Newfoundland and Labrador in partnership with Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Agriculture, Agriculture in the Classroom Program, the School Milk Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Egg Farmers of Newfoundland and Labrador is holding its 7th Annual Rooting for Health in five schools throughout our province today and tomorrow! The purpose of this initiative is to help school aged children recognize the relationship between farming, food and health. Farmers will provide details on their local trade. Breakfast will be prepared by a chef using local ingredients including eggs, milk and berries.
We have a ton of special guests lined up for our events all throughout the Province and hope to have some special animal guests as well!!
Stay tuned to our Social Media Networks on Facebook and Twitter tomorrow AM @KidsEatSmartNL for lots of great pictures of our Rooting for Health events!
