On October 19, nursery furniture manufacturer Argington commented on a post by Ruth Brunner, a teacher in Colorado, who had outlined some of her experiences with her students following a healthy eating promotion and provided a few recipes.
According to the Colorodoan, Brunner explained that she had “learned a great deal about the benefits of eating nutritious, quality food” while helping her students with their entries for a poster contest begun by the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI). Brunner learned how nutrients get passed along, as the name of the poster contest said, “From Soil to Spoon.” Brunner summarized the process, saying, “The nutrients removed in harvested crops from the soil need to be replenished by organic and inorganic fertilizers. Those nutrients are then passed on to us from soil to spoon.” She also discussed involving kids in the food prep process, saying that parents should “empower [your] children to prepare their favorite nutritious foods, which can also be packed into their lunches.”
Nursery furniture company Argington representative Clay Darrohn says, “We love the idea of getting kids more involved in at-home daily food preparation. The earlier that kids learn the importance of eating healthy, nutritious food, the better. At Argington, we firmly believe in this, which is why we use organic cotton in our bedding and renewable resources for our furniture. Our products are eco-friendly, and we embrace the idea of teaching the next generation just how important healthy eating really is.”
Darrohn goes on to say that Brunner learning so much about nutrition should also be eye-opening to parents. He says, “We all think that we know best when it comes to our kids’ nutrition and needs. For Ms. Brunner, a teacher, to learn something new about basic nutrition and then pass that on to more children every year is invaluable. Parents should learn all that they can about healthy eating and help educate other parents about it. Only through learning can we foster the cycle of healthy eating and nutrition education.”
