“Community-based interventions that engage both children and parents may provide added benefit by promoting a home food environment that is supportive of healthful eating. The Delicious and Nutritious Garden proved to be an intervention that involved both children and their parents, and that consequently promoted positive changes in the home food environment. Food and nutrition professionals should consider programs that actively engage parents to promote change in the home food environment.” (p133)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
