Dear Educator (or friend of an educator),  
The Eating Lean and Green nutrition education program is different from others,  in that children learn about healthful eating in a holistic way, with consideration for the environment and animals (wild and farm). LGK believes this honest and integrative approach is key for meaningful and lasting behavior change.
