The experts at the Dole Nutrition Institute designed the Garden Kits to be simple and fun to use, helping young people learn how food is grown while instilling healthy eating habits.

“Teaching children the value of healthy eating has been part of Dole’s mission for more than twenty years and today we are proud to take that one step further with our new DOLE Garden Kit,” said Jennifer Grossman, Senior Vice President for Dole Food Company and head of the Dole Nutrition Institute. “Whether it’s providing nutritious recipes or a wealth of online resources, the Dole Nutrition Institute is committed to nurturing knowledge and a love for fruits and veggies.”

The Garden Kit launch follows on the heels of the DOLE Portobello Mushroom Powder released earlier this year. The Garden Kits will be available exclusively at www.doledepot.com for $19.95, while supplies last.
