Join us on Wednesday, April 2, 2014, on the University of Maine at Farmington campus, and join in on the conversation about how we will feed the next generation to produce healthy, productive adults. When it comes down to it, much of our lives and our children’s lives center around food. Are we giving them the best start possible? Are we teaching them healthy habits that will carry them through and be passed on to future generations? Are we supporting healthy attitudes towards food? Download the conference brochure.
