I really enjoyed presenting the Hunger in Our Community toolkit to the students.  It was enlightening to see them grasp just how difficult it could be to live with food insecurity.  I truly believe after the presentation they realized that hunger was a reality in their direct community.

I presented the Healthy Eating. From the Ground Up. presentation to elementary students. The kids were engaged, active and participated in the entire hour of the Kids Eat Right presentation with taste testing activity. Many students commented that they tried foods they had never eaten before.

As a Kids Eat Right Healthy Eating. From the Ground Up. mini-grantee, it was so fun to be able to do an interactive presentation and connect with the kids in a different way than in the office. It was great to see them absorbing the information, especially when we were discussing whole grains. I think they will be much more open to them in the future!

As a Healthy Eating. From the Ground Up. mini-grantee, I provided two parent presentations. My parent participants and I enjoyed great interactive discussions on easy grocery shopping tips and meal solutions for busy families. I especially liked the concrete suggestions provided for how to include more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables in meals and snacks.

As a dietitian based in a lower income area, it was incredibly beneficial to have the Kids Eat Right Hunger in our Community toolkit because it really hit home with many of the individuals. The questions and personal stories it provoked was inspiring and provided proof that educating the public can make such a change in the community. I look forward to the opportunity to use these toolkits in the future to start more conversation about this ongoing problem.

These inner city students knew first-hand the problems and consequences of hunger, but they also wanted to help others in greater need by organizing a food drive for our local Food Bank. Thank you for the Hunger in Our Community mini-grant opportunity!

I enjoyed bringing valuable information from the Hunger in our Community. What We Can Do. toolkit to parents of preschool aged children in New Brunswick, NJ. I spoke with parents that deal with hunger on a daily basis and saw the immense need to not fix but empower those individuals by providing access to resources like the ones found in this toolkit.

As a Kids Eat Right Crew mini-grantee, I presented two Kids Eat Right presentations (Family Mealtime and Healthy Breakfast) to students at the Cunningham Children's Home in Urbana, IL. I received very positive feedback from my presentation participants. Kids Eat Right toolkits were easy to use and very informative. Participants enjoyed both presentations and learned new nutrition information. They especially liked ideas for quick nutritious meals. I will definitely use Kids Eat Right toolkits in the future.

It was fun being a Healthy Eating. From the Ground Up. mini-grantee! I made home-made granola with yogurt and blueberries and strawberries for my group of pre-school parents. Parents liked the handouts—healthy, fun ideas to do with their toddlers and pre-schoolers.

One of the several presentations I did using the Healthy Eating. From the Ground Up. toolkit was in a nutrition "boot camp" for middle-school age pre-teens. They learned how eating plant foods increases their intake of nutrients we fall short on and we played the jeopardy game from the PowerPoint presentation. We then did a variety of hands-on activities to reinforce what was discussed. Their parents participated in the parent PowerPoint, so the discussion could continue at home. Pre-teens can sometimes be a challenge to present to, but keeping the activities fun kept them interested and their parents appreciated the reinforcement of healthy habits. Thank you for the mini-grant!
