Host Richard Hentschel talks about the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior study with Laura Barr, Nutrition and Wellness Educator. Studies are showing that if children become involved a variety of aspects of growing vegetables, the interest in eating fruits and vegetables increases and becomes part of their good eating practices. Extension, through a grant from the Illinois State Board of Education, will be involved with better eating habits and choices in the school lunch programs.
