  8. FEEDBACK FROM PARTICIPANTS • “Through this grant, staff at this site became more open-minded about encouraging children to try different types of food…which helped to facilitate more conversation about making healthy food choices.” – Southwest Human Development • “Having you at our center on a regular basis, going room to room to demonstrate activities was much better received than reading about this in a handout or manual.” – White Mountain Apache Head Start • “Staff and children were always excited to see what new activities would be introduced. The menus were also enjoyed by all.” - WACOG
