We know engaging kids is a difficult feat and picky eaters are hard to appease. We also know that curious minds and an appetite for the unknown are simply tools for harnessing children into healthy, young consumers!
The Power of Produce (POP) Club looks to transform your kids into farmers market participants with educational activities, demonstrations, interactions with their local food growers and challenges to try fresh market produce. Take for instance, the “Two Bite Club”—a challenge to taste new fruits or veggies or give familiar ones a second chance.
By participating in POP Club activities like the “Two Bite Club,” each kid will earn a POP Bucks voucher. Children are awarded for their efforts and may select fresh fruits and veggies for the voucher amount at approved vendors.
POP Club participation is a win-win for parents and children alike. Parents, witness their kids’ light bulb moments as they interact with activities, food and practices that champion a healthy lifestyle. Kids will learn while having fun, with the added bonus of becoming active market members.
Empowered by the bucks, they are sure to shop and strut as they peruse the market for their edible take-home treasures. Free and fun for all—the POP Club tent is where families will want to stop before they shop, every market day.
Food samples and demonstrations are components of POP Club, so please keep in mind any food allergy concerns. By participating in POP Club, I grant this market, its representatives and employees, the right to take photographs of my child while they are participating in market activities. Photographs may be used with or without my name for any lawful purpose, including for example such purposes as publicity, illustration, advertising and web content.
Once parents/guardians sign up, they can pick up their punch card at the information booth when they visit the East Lansing Farmers Market.
Each week, there will be an activity for their child to complete and a $3 voucher to spend only on fruit or vegetables and plants that produce fruit.
The goal is encouraging healthy lifestyles.
