Join us on Thursday, April 22 at 12:30 pm ET as we discuss ways medical professionals can team up with the Partnership for a Healthier America to help increase and sustain consumption of vegetables among our nation's youngest eaters.
In a new white paper, "Yes, Kids Can Learn to Love Veggies", PHA analyzed research shows that exposure to veggies early and often is key to raising adventurous, healthy eaters for life. Through a new nutrition education campaign, "Veggies Early and Often", PHA rallies together a cross-sector group of a dozen inaugural partners, including industry leaders, medical professionals and early education providers, to consolidate evidence and layout an action agenda to transform the food landscape through a veggie-forward approach. Whether you are a physician, nurse, nutritionist, lactation consultant or occupational therapist, tune-in on April 22 to learn how you can be part of raising a generation of healthy veggie-loving, adventurous eaters with us.
