School district hosts farmers markets to encourage healthy eating

The nutrition team at Manteca Unified School District in Manteca, Calif., is offering six junior farmers markets for students over the summer, Recordnet reports.

Students who attend the markets will be able to participate in an education session that highlights the importance of eating healthy. After the session, students will be given three “nutrition education dollars,” which they can use to purchase fresh produce at the market. 

The nutrition team received additional funding from a local supermarket to put on the markets.
