Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program

Nutrition Services believes every child  should have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of foods.  To encourage this, Omaha Public Schools participates in the United States Department of Agriculture's Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP).

The program is a creative and effective way to introduce fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snacks throughout the school day.  It creates healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices and increases the children's consumption.  FFVP also introduces children a variety of products that they otherwise might not have the opportunity to sample.

Participating schools order fresh fruits and vegetables from Nutrition Services twice a week and teachers incorporate them into the classroom as a learning tool.

FFVP makes a difference in the children's diets to impact their present and future health and teaches them the importance of healthy eating habits.
