HUNGER & HEALTH
IMPORTANCE OF FOSTERING HEALTHY EATING AT THE START

FOOD INSECURITY IS A HUGE ISSUE IN OUR COMMUNITY TODAY.
1 IN 6 YOUTH IN ILLINOIS ARE CONSIDERED FOOD INSECURE.

Inadequate nutrition can permanently alter a child's brain growth leading to stunted IQ and learning/social challenges. Join us to learn the role hunger plays in a child's development, how to encourage children to try new foods, and how to offer foods repeatedly to shape healthy eaters.
