Hy-Vee programs plants seeds for healthy habits
The Newton Hy-Vee kids’ community garden will provide a seed-to-table experience for children to foster a love of vegetables.
Jenny Thompson, registered dietitian at the Newton Hy-Vee, is implementing this new program to cultivate healthier food choices in children. The intent of the program is to increase children’s preferences for vegetables through the experience of helping to grow, prepare and taste featured vegetables in the garden located on-site at the Newton Hy-Vee store.
The goal of the program is to plant the seeds for healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Classes will take place in the garden throughout the summer and into the fall. Jenny is currently working with the Newton YMCA Childcare, Peck Child Development Center, Loving Hands Daycare and offering classes open to any children in the community.
