Learning about Nutrition through Activities (LANA)

Learning about Nutrition through Activities (LANA) is a direct education and PSE change intervention designed to create supportive environments and provide role models that encourage preschool children to enjoy eating fruits and vegetables. The LANA Preschool Program is based on well-established nutrition education and behavior-change theories. LANA helps children learn to eat more fruits and vegetables by increasing opportunities for children to taste and eat fruits and vegetables, providing opportunities for hands-on experiences with fruits and vegetables, creating a supportive environment for eating fruits and vegetables, providing children with role models who eat fruits and vegetables and connecting classroom or child care activities with their home environment.
