Examples of "go" foods are carbohydrates such as grains, "grow" foods are protein foods such as eggs and "glow" foods are vitamin- and nutrient-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables. The Go, Grow and Glow program is designed to educate preschool children about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Through the "3 G" curriculum, children learn that carbohydrates high in fiber, vitamins and minerals give them energy to run and play and also provide valuable energy to the brain. In addition, children learn that to grow up with a strong heart, bones and healthy muscles, proteins are essential. Proteins help make possible the proper development of their changing bodies. Vegetables and fruits as part of a daily regimen contribute to sparkly eyes, glowing skin and a healthy digestive system.
