Teaching children the value of healthy eating has been a mission of Dole’s for over twenty years. Whether it’s providing nutritious recipes (like in our new Kids’ Cookbook) or a wealth of online resources found in our blications section on dole.com, the Dole Nutrition Institute cultivates a love for fruits and veggies. Now, we’ve gone one step further with our new DOLE Garden Kit.
Designed to teach kids the origins of their food, our Garden Kit is packed with everything needed to start a vegetable garden. Included are 12 different seed varieties including such nutritious powerhouses as broccoli, tomatoes, kale and carrots. You’ll also find peat pots to get seeds going, trays, row markers for the soil and a journal filled with gardening tips and recipes. It’s a great way to get children to learn how to plant, nurture, and harvest while ultimately engendering the value of good eating habits.
