Health Tips’s promote the health benefits of over 100 different vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices (including the ones grown in class). The primary vitamins and minerals of each food and research references are included in every Health Tip.
The goal is to help influence the shopping habits of parents so they can provide the healthiest options for their children when possible. We also hope it leads to parents encouraging their children to grow at home the foods grown in class through the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP).
The CFMP/Food Growing League (FGL) is partially funded by sponsors of these Health Tips which can be customized to include photos provided by the Sponsor whether they be pictures taken of nature or your office. If no photo is provided, we’ll use a photo of our own.
Once the Health Tips (HT) are decided (with customized photo or not), they can be featured on the Sponsor’s websites and/or social media. We sometimes share these inforgraphics on our own ReBuildUp Facebook page which we use to journal the planting, watering, and harvesting of students using our program.
