Hen House - Be a Smart Shopper!

Turn a visit to your local Hen House into a hands-on educational adventure.

This field trip reinforces lessons on nutrition for kids, healthy decision making, and overall wellness.

Students learn to build healthy habits, understand portion size and how to make balanced meal choices using MyPlate principles, the benefits of organics, and the importance of staying active. 

The Be A Smart Shopper! program opens the doors of your neighborhood Hen House to teach valuable lessons on healthy eating, including local and organic foods. The field trip is reviewed by dietitians and Field Trip Factory's expert educators, creating memories that last long after the trip is over.
