Kids Create Ads for Fresh Fruit

Bus riders in Seattle are seeing many of the traditional junk food advertisements on the buses transformed into child-created promotions for fresh fruits and vegetables. The campaign is sponsored by Washington State University Extension Food $ense Program through a grant from the King County STEPS to a Healthier US. The program has helped nearly a thousand minority and low income kids create posters for healthy foods which are featured on city buses. Its main goal is to improve the nutrition of low-income inner city kids by teaching them gardening, cooking and food self reliance skills.
