Approach: Early Sprouts: Cultivating Healthy Food Choices in Young Children approach engages young children in gardening, sensory exploration, and cooking throughout the school year. Six “target vegetables” provide the focus for exploration and discovery


Moving Kids Forward Foundation has partnered with Dr. Karrie Kalich, of Early Sprouts, to create Early Sprouts: Farm to Preschool Certification. The ultimate goal of this initiative is to develop a Farm to Preschool certification to ensure successful and widespread implementation of local food initiatives in preschool settings. By providing practical tools and strategies, this certification would empower childcare professionals to strategically and effectively participate in Farm to Preschool activities.
