Creating Generation Healthy
Today I am finishing up my free seed packet deliveries for Little Sprouts Garden Gang members. I decided to surprise each childcare provider with some fun extras to say thank you for all they do for children everyday. I was able to share a variety of nutritional information to help promote Creating Generation and my 2-step plan, "ME" -Move More, Eat Real. I will be back soon to visit each of them again to see how their gardens are growing and to read them the book I wrote, Come and Plant a Garden with Me.
This year my charity, Little Sprouts Garden Gang is partnered with 105 childcare facilities in 21 states. If you don't already know, I provide free vegetable seeds so that childcares can plant gardens with their children. So, I have been busy the last couple weeks sorting, packaging and labeling seed packets to be sent out. Over 500 packets, containing 73,600 seeds to be exact! (carrots, green beans, peas, corn, swiss chard, lettuce, beets, squash, cucumbers) My platform is Creating Generation Healthy, and I have been able to impact the lives of children on a National level through Little Sprouts Garden Gang. It is my mission for Little Sprouts to foster lifelong healthy eating habits for children. I am working towards getting Little Sprouts Garden Gangs in all 50 states by 2019.
What an amazing day spent with the children at Hoover Elementary School in Coon Rapids. Thank you Hoover, for letting me teach all of your students about Creating Generation Healthy and my 2-Step plan, "ME" Move More, Eat Real! My goal is to educate children so they can create lifelong healthy eating and exercise habits. Together we are #CreatingGenerationHealthy #MissCoonRapidsOT2018#theresheserves #futureteacher

Now that orientation is over and all head shots are up on the Miss Minnesota website, I wanted to take a minute to show my appreciation to the amazing team of Paula and Gianna.

I had a great day at Heart Of the Lakes Elementary School today. I shared some books about eating healthy and staying active. We talked about my 2-step plan "ME" Move More and Eat Real. The kids all took the MyPlate Pledge and I shared with them my autograph cards and #CreatingGenerationHealthy bracelets. Thank you to Mrs. Richter, Mrs. Guhena and Mrs. Flatau for sharing your students with me today!
