CHILE Plus Grocery Store
We partner with the local grocery stores in communities where the CHILE Plus curriculum is currently implemented at surrounding Head Starts. The purpose of this component is to increase availability and visibility of healthier food options and to assist families in making healthier food choices by providing recipes and nutritional information.
We partner with local grocery stores in communities where CHILE Plus is being implemented. The purpose of this component is to encourage store management to increase the availability and visibility of healthier foods to support families choosing those foods.
Element of this component include signage, posters and recipes that promote fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy. Healthier food items are labeled with the CHILE Plus logo so that families can identify foods encouraged by CHILE Plus, including canned fruits not in syrup, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, whole grain and low-sugar cereals. The CHILE Plus team maintains upkeep of the materials and promotes the grocery store to center staff, to families at family events, and through materials sent home.
