Appetite for a Change

A campaign to reduce children's exposure
to pesticides, toxins, and junk foods

Four Appetite for a Change Goals

STOP spraying toxic pesticides on school property, playgrounds and in buildings, and convert to integrated pest management practices.

KICK junk foods and junk food ads out of our schools.

START converting school lunches to healthier menus, using locally grown and/or organic and transition to organic ingredients (no pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, irradiation or genetically engineered ingredients). Offer vegetarian options.

TEACH kids about healthy food choices and sustainable agriculture through school garden projects and curriculum materials.
