Now Available! Texas Harvest of the Month Materials
TDA's newly launched Harvest of the Month materials help cultivate a healthy connection to local food and farms by increasing children's understanding of seasonal foods. Children need a minimum of 15 unique exposures to a new food before they will accept it and these materials work hand in hand with taste testing and learning opportunities to reduce a child's reluctance to try foods and get students excited about making the right choice.
Materials include posters, product sheets and farmer profiles. All tools can be used in a variety of settings including classrooms and the cafeteria.
The following materials are now available for download:
Product Sheets - nutritional information and seasonal and regional availability.
Farmer Profiles - profiles of select farmers and ranchers currently participating in the Farm Fresh Initiative.
Product Posters - advertisements for seasonal fruits and vegetables.
