NEWS RELEASE: Premier Clark Expands Kids' Fruit and Veggie Program

COURTENAY - More B.C. children will have access to fresh, B.C.-grown fruit and vegetable snacks in the classroom thanks to a $3-million expansion of the BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program, Premier Christy Clark announced today.

"Children need a healthy, balanced diet to learn, grow and to prevent health concerns like chronic disease and obesity later in life," said Premier Clark. "As a mom, I know that getting kids to eat their fruits and vegetables can sometimes be a challenge. The great thing about this program is that it brings a variety of fruits and vegetables right into the classroom, helping to make healthy eating part of a routine that can last a lifetime."
