Learn, Grow, Eat and Go!

Learn! Grow! Eat! & GO!! (LGEG) is a 10-week hands-on, multifaceted, and academically rich unit of study. This program nationally is the culmination of 5 years of research into the impact of the Junior Master Gardener program on children, schools, and families. It incorporates the best practices identified by research and combines the interdisciplinary elements of nutrition, garden science, physical activity, food preparation, and fresh vegetables tasting to improve the health and wellness of children, families, and the school community.

The desired outcomes of this project are:

  • Increases in moderate and vigorous daily physical activity
  • Increases in student vegetable exposure and preference
  • Decreased comsumption of sugar sweetened beverages
  • increase self-efficiency to consume healthy beverages

In the 2015-16 year, 5 Hawaii sites were part of a pilot program and implemented the program at their sites.

The LGEG program has expanded to more sites, schools and after school programs in the 2016-17 year. Learn more about this project from the Junior Master Gardener LGEG site.
