Browns Family Childcare

Lindsey Brown
Owner/ Preschool teacher

"I have shared PA Harvest of the Month activities on my Facebook page, Browns Childcare. I love participating in this program because it helps me educate my preschoolers on all of the benefits of eating healthy foods. I use the downloadable resources on website to help me create lessons for my children. I pair the foods we eat during snacks, meals or taste tests with books along with posters and print outs to enhance learning in many developmental domains. We do "five sense activities" to learn about the specific item. I have been participating in the program for nearly two years now. The stickers provide a fun incentive for children trying new foods!"

Troy ASD | Peppers

Troy Area School District's students are taking part in the Pennsylvania Harvest of the Month program developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and Project PA (Penn State University). September's Pennsylvania Harvest of the Month item is peppers. The staff prepare and serve them fresh to all students. A WR Croman Elementary School student featured in the photograph was willing to try the red bell peppers. Several of the students remarked that they thought the peppers would be hot because of the red color. The Cafeteria Manager and her staff helped explain that they were very sweet and not hot at all (Red bell peppers are actually among the sweetest of all bell peppers.). They encouraged all the students to try them.
