To the editor:
I would like to thank the Healthy Heart Network for awarding my Live, Laugh, Love day care grant, which was applied to our garden.
Each year we plan, plant, enjoy and harvest a garden at day care. With the current concerns over obesity, it has become evident we need to educate and encourage children from the earliest age to eat healthy foods.
The Healthy Heart Network has been an important contributor to my day care goals. Through the training called NAPSAC, we learned how to include various nutritional elements in our daily menus.
Now we have received funding to help the children become a part of the choosing, growing and preparing of healthy, natural food.
Once again, I want to thank the Healthy Heart Network for their contribution and help in educating our youngsters about a healthy lifestyle.
