Tooty fruity vegie pilot project
The Tooty fruity vegie pilot project was a two-year, health promotion program aimed at increasing fruit and vegetable consumption among primary school children on the North Coast of New South Wales.
The project aimed to achieve this increase by improving:
- children's fruit and vegetable knowledge, attitudes, access and preparation skills
- parents' fruit and vegetable knowledge and preparation skills and their involvement in fruit and vegetable promoting activities in the schools and elsewhere
- teachers' attitudes towards teaching about fruits and vegetables in schools and their skills and confidence in relation to teaching about fruits and vegetables.
