Time Out: Love Your Veggies.

Monday, May 5th, 2008 at 8:07 am

Actress and mother Kimberly Williams- Paisley has written a book to support the Love Your Veggies Nationwide School Lunch Campaign. It’s called Henry and the Hidden Veggie Garden.

 

Williams- Paisley co-wrote Henry and the Hidden Veggie Garden with the person she calls one of "her first and best teachers," her father, Gurney Williams III. The book tells the story of a typical boy who’d rather play video games than play outside and who prefers to eat pizza and burgers instead of peas and carrots. But after a visit to his aunt’s farm, Henry discovers a new way of eating and living, which he comes to embrace in a surprising way.

Nationwide School Lunch Campaign awarded 51 elementary schools each with a $10,000 nutrition grant. The campaign aims to increase access to — and consumption of — fresh fruits and vegetables in elementary schools across the country at a time when schools are required by federal mandate to strengthen nutrition and exercise programs as part of local wellness policies.
