The Imperial County Public Health Department’s Little Hands Growing and Cooking Healthy Foods Project targets local preschools in an effort to increase children’s exposure to fruits and vegetables through gardening, cooking activities, and sensory explorations.

The idea is to expose children to consuming fruits and vegetables at an early age. The project is funded by the Imperial County Children and Families First Commission and currently there are six preschools participating in the project. The project has been well accepted by the children, preschool staff and parents alike.
