HEART Markets are fun, high-energy, interactive events with nutrition education, music, and meal preparation demonstrations to teach children how to turn wholesome foods into something tasty that their whole family will enjoy.

Nutrition matters. It’s that simple. A diet that supplies the body with the right vitamins, minerals, and nutrients is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle and allows people to achieve their full potential. In this series of blog posts, our resident nutritionist Kathy Egan (RDN, LD, MEd) will explore how the Maryland Food Bank is helping ensure that food-insecure Marylanders have consistent access to healthy foods and understand the importance of nutrition in their lives.
People just need to be educated about nutrition. I find that sometimes parents can be a challenge, but kids are always willing to listen and try.
