Roma kids veg out with program to promote healthy eating
THESE Roma State College kids love eating their fruits and vegies, and now a new state government-run program will help our youngest improve their daily diets.
The free Parenting, Eating and Activity for Child Health (PEACH) program will be rolled out to families of children between five and 11 in Roma, St George and Charleville.
The program's co-ordinators brought Vegie Man out to Roma State College's junior campus on Friday to promote PEACH.
Program co-ordinator Kathy Morrow said the idea behind the program was to try and destroy the myth that healthy eating is expensive.
"Eating healthy is often considered too expensive but that just isn't the case," she said.
"I would just love to get a number of families involved in the program."
If you would like to get involved with PEACH, phone Kathy on 0407 153 052.
