BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutrition Program

Charlie Lake Elementary has been accepted to the BC School Fruit and Vegetable Program for September 2009.  This is exciting news and will allow us to continue to promote healthy lifestyle choices for our students.

The BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program is part of ActNowBC, an initiative to improve the health of BC children and families. Students and school staff will receive a fresh fruit or vegetable snack twice a week every other week. Eating the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables improves children’s health and improves children’s ability to concentrate. The fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables to be served in the Program will be grown in BC, subject to availability.  For further information please visit www.aitc.ca/bc.snacks .
