Combatting Childhood Obesity: Fruitful Minds



Made up of a student board from UC Berkeley, support staff, an Advisory Board of professionals in the areas of education, dietetics and business operations, Fruitful Minds delivers customized nutrition programs to communities in need. The programs take into consideration “local diets, the ethnic makeup of the community, parent and family involvement and age appropriate lesson planning.” Each lesson, a combination of information sharing and fun activities, is given by a team of two college students called Fruitful Minds Ambassadors. From the Fruitful Minds website: “The program explores food group basics, nutrient basics, labeling, exercise, energy and personal choices, sustainable agriculture and [students can] see, touch and taste fresh local produce from a partner farm during the class.” Find out more at:
