“In my kindergarten class, we use the Garden Heroes for a variety of  nutrition activities – each child has their own cuddly toy to play with. They are learning the names and shapes of  foods that are good for them.”
–Sally Green, Kindergarten Teacher

“I think Garden Heroes are a  great way to introduce healthy foods to children. They are colorful, soft characters that kids really relate to!
–Seth Lundin, Parent
