There are many exciting initiatives happening across Fairfax County and the schools are promoting some excellent programs! As a student, you know firsthand how important it is to take care of yourself in order to keep up with your school work, sports and many other activities. You have MANY demands on your time and a lot of pressure to achieve, so what you put in your mouth really matters.
Real Food For Kids mission is committed to working in collaborative ways with the schools to ensure that you are being offered the very best in fresh, whole foods. There is a lot of highly processed food in our national food supply. So getting rid of the excess sugars, the preservatives and chemicals that simply don’t belong in a healthy diet is not an easy task but it's worth the effort. We encourage our kids to help by getting involved in their own schools and finding ways to make positive contributions to health and happiness of our community.
To the right and below, you'll find examples of other students that have made a difference.
