- Nicole Spain, Speaker

- Laura Dove, Speaker
- Dr. Caree Cotwright, Speaker
Join us on Wednesday, October 13 at 2:00pm ET as we discuss the important role of early childhood educators to help raise a generation of healthy, adventurous, veggie-loving eaters.
We will introduce the Partnership for a Healthier America’s Veggies Early & Often initiative and evidence to support why young eaters need veggies early and often. Our panelists will share their business case for embracing veggies as an organizational priority and discuss strategies—using curriculum and instruction, menu development and meal service, parent engagement and more—to help young eaters develop the skills and confidence to try new foods and learn to enjoy a variety of vegetables. Participants will learn tips to overcome common challenges related to feeding vegetables to young eaters.
