Farm Fresh For Kids just returned from participation in Reno's 1st Annual Community Health Fair! From 10am to 3pm today we discussed the importance of fruits & vegetables, and a balanced diet, with anyone who would listen. We brought some nutrition activities for kids, including a MyPlate poster, a fruit & vegetable page, and a diet trivia quiz.

We also distributed materials from one of our major partners, the Northern Nevada Dental Health Program / Community Health Alliance. Realizing that nutrition and dental health go hand in hand, our partners offered to give out free toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss as well. But what would a nutrition organization be without healthy food? So, to cap it all, we gave out nearly 50 farm-fresh peaches, plums, and nectarines.

Thank you, Duwell Medical, for organizing such a great event! It is truly needed in our community.
