Farm to Preschool
Growing with MO Harvest of the Season is a Missouri Farm to preschool program that offers resources and training for all types of early care and education settings. The goal is to educate children and the adults in their lives about the benefits of locally grown fruits and vegetables and help them find ways to eat more of these foods. The program focuses on 14 Missouri grown fruits and vegetables.
Child care providers choose activities from these strategies:
- Classroom learning experiences
- Field trips
- Fresh fruits and vegetables in child care meals
- Gardening with young children
- Family engagement
