Kindergarten Initiative

Intent of the Intervention

The Kindergarten Initiative (KI) is a practice-based intervention designed to promote healthy eating habits in kindergarten students, through nutrition and agriculture education, school snacks from local farms, and parent engagement activities.

The Kindergarten Initiative is a school-based program that focuses on the individual/interpersonal level of the socio-ecologic model (children and their parents/caregivers), with a secondary focus on the organizational level (local farms and schools).
