This week on our Public Affairs Program

This week we learn about Beecher’s Pure Food Kids Foundation, a private non-profit organization dedicated to empowering kids to make healthy food choices for life.
Kristin Hyde is the Executive Director and Brooke Stover is a 5th Grade teacher in the Bellevue School District who has been participating with Pure Food Kids for many years.
Through a workshop format in the public schools aimed at 4th and 5th grades,The Pure Food Kids Foundation teaches kids to be Food Detectives by investigating ingredients labels, fat and sugar content, artificial ingredients and deceptive packaging.
Follow up studies have shown that 86% of kids who took the Pure Food Kids Workshop are more likely to read Nutrition labels before buying a product.
