GROW Lakes Region wants to find new ways to encourage eating of fruits and vegetables


LACONIA — A meeting to give members of the public an opportunity to offer ideas on ways to encourage families to eat more fruits and vegetables is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 10, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Laconia Public Library.

Any community member with an interest in this issue, or who would like to contribute their perspective, is welcome to join in the discussion.

The GROW Lakes Region planning grant (a HEAL initiative) is looking at different ways to encourage greater consumption of fruits and vegetables by families in our community.

A 2013 report from the Center for Disease Control states that the average American consumes far fewer fruits and vegetables than recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010. While New Hampshire ranks among the top states, there is still significant room for improvement, especially among children and adolescents.

No RSVP is necessary to participate in this open forum. Further information can be obtained by contacting Karen Barker at This email address is being protected from spambots.
