Kristina commented on Community Agriculture + Child Care

Really like this idea - however, I think I'm missing the connection between child care and CSA. So there would be food nutrition education included in the child care programming? Or CSA food would be available at the daycare sites? Actually, I think both of these could be beneficial together.

Keep innovating!

Being the parent of now slightly older children (my youngest is now 5) I would have loved to have access to something like this a few years ago. I do have one question (and I apologize if this was outlined above and I overlooked it) - how will we know that "family, friends and neighbors" are suited to watch children? Clearly average daycare providers go through extensive training - and I am not suggesting that these people would do that. But surely there needs to be some type of screening or training process?

Awesome idea!

I love this idea - we can all use more nutrition education. I do have a few questions -
1) How would youth be encouraged to interact in this? And how would parents be motivated to do the food education? Would there be some type of extrinsic reward for doing this training (i.e. incentive, certificate, etc.)?

2) Are there other groups in your area doing nutrition education? Would there be the possibility of partnering with them to increase your impact?

3) How does this nutrition education differ from other types of nutrition education currently happening?

Keep up the good work!
