Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) Evaluation Report
Key results include:

  • Children participating in the FFVP ate 15% more fresh produce than their non-participating counterparts.
  • The FFVP was an effective avenue for introducing children to new produce. Large majorities of children took and tried the snacks when offered.
  • FFVP schools offered nutrition education more frequently than non-participating schools.
  • School principals, teachers, parents, and children were very positive about the program and wanted to see it continue in their schools.
