March is National Nutrition Month. To celebrate what healthy food is and where it comes from, the Center held its 3rd Annual Preschool Open House—Healthy Foods Start on the Farm, on March 5th. Over 200 Ventura County preschoolers and their families participated in age appropriate and fun activities that demonstrate how plants grow as well as the importance of eating fruits and vegetables and participating in physical activity. Participants learned about MyPlate—a guide for making healthful eating choices and tasted farm fresh vegetables. Various displays demonstrated California and Ventura County agriculture. The farm was filled with the joyful sound of children laughing and learning. The morning event was a great success.
