Proudly Introducing SnackTime Explorers, a brand-new FFVP educational toolkit designed in collaboration with FRESHEALTH

 

The SnackTime Explorers program is a series of adaptable mini-lessons designed to supplement educators who participate in the USDA’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable (FFVP) program. FFVP brings fresh-cut produce to eligible schools, increasing exposure to and familiarity with fresh fruits and vegetables. SnackTime Explorers is curated to accompany the weekly FFVP produce deliveries in a fun and fresh way. Designed around the Food Education Standards, SnackTime Explorers will act as a guidepost to help students and educators build connections to food, each other, and their communities.

Excite & Inspire Students During Snack Time! 

This program has been thoughtfully designed with both students and educators in mind. Teachers will have an accessible framework to introduce new produce to their students, and students are provided with a developmentally appropriate structure that highlights their social emotional learning. SnackTime Explorers transforms classroom snack time into an exciting journey and exploration of new foods. Are you ready to become a SnackTime Explorer?
