The recipients of the Healthy Breakfast RD mini-grant, with support from Academy Partner, Coca-Cola Company, will be wrapping up their presentations this month. Here's what some have to say about how others are responding to the presentations:

"People felt the information was relevant and easy to relate to. They liked having handouts to take with them and potentially use at home."
"All the children loved the presentations, and so did the teachers"
"I received wonderful feedback. Everyone reported learning something. Presentation brought an awareness and initiative to change family ways of shopping, preparing, cooking and planning a variety of foods and snacks."
