California School Garden Network Critical Questions on Topic 1. How can we as college students create a plan to prevent obesity among children?

2. What type of plan can we implement into children so that they learn at an early age to eat healthy and participate in at least 60 minutes of physical activity?

3. How can we incorporate San Jose State University into our plan?

4. What are the costs going to be? Other School Gardens Emerson Junior High Claremont Middle School Baird Middle School Conclusion -By having students participate in a hands on experience of growing fruits and vegetables, it will generate appreciation and curiosity towards the fruits and vegetables, thus creating an environment where students will want to sample the fruits and vegetables.
-In end, students will choose healthier choices and in turn lower the chances of growing up obese. References 1.Delprete, A. D. (2011).
