“The Great Big Crunch provided a terrific opportunity to celebrate healthy eating and highlight the availability of local foods,” said Jennifer Spence, Co-Project Lead Healthy Kids Community Challenge Burlington.  “The proportion of obese children has nearly tripled in the last 25 years. Partnerships like these help spread the word about the importance of healthy snacking to school age children and make learning about healthy local eating fun.”
