South Bay Cafeterias Offer New Types of Produce Each Month

Harvest of the Month Program Encourages Healthy Eating Habits

Cafeterias in all South Bay schools began participating in the Harvest of the Month program this past academic year. Each month, students were introduced to seasonal produce, and they were able to easily incorporate these fruits and vegetables into their meals. Posters at the salad bars promoted new foods, which were available for taste tests. This program will continue to provide students the opportunity to safely try different types of fruits and vegetables that they may not have otherwise known about.

The Network for a Healthy California sponsors this program throughout the entire state. Its goal is to stress the importance of encouraging healthy eating habits early on. Studies have shown that a strong focus on nutrition combined with daily physical activity boosts the overall physical and mental capabilities of students. School attendance, positive attitudes, and the ability to better learn new material are all significantly improved by a healthy diet. More information regarding the Harvest of the Month can be found here.

Coupled with the in-school initiatives are informative newsletters which families receive monthly. These highlight nutritional facts about produce grown in California. Students can share their new in-school experiences with family members. Easy-to-make recipes and trivia are also featured on the newsletter to reinforce South Bay’s commitment to all-encompassing and applicable education.
