Health Department Supports Free Nutrition Program For Area Schools

Students in grades K-1 in Marion County can learn how to eat more fruits and vegetables thanks to a fun, interactive program offered by the Marion County Health Department’s Nutrition Services department. Fruits and Veggies: More Matters is a three-week educational program designed to help kids make healthy choices about the foods they eat. The best part about this program is that students get to celebrate at the end with a tasting party. The program is FREE and available to schools in Marion County. (A section for grades 2 & 3 will be available in the fall.) For more information or to register your school, contact Jaclyn Morgenstern at or call (317) 221-7403.
