Farm to Early Care and Education (ECE) provides children with experiential learning opportunities, which increase their nutritional awareness while engaging their parents in issues related to child nutrition.

Farm to ECE activities can include taste tests, edible gardens, menu changes, and nutrition education.

Farm to ECE is not a “one size fits all” strategy, thus the core elements of local food sourcing, school gardens,

and food education adapt readily to different settings, geographic locations, enrollment numbers,

and diverse ages and abilities of children, staff, and families.
