First 5 San Diego, Vons launch healthy eating partnership

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - First 5 San Diego is teaming up with Vons to launch a healthy eating program.

The initiative encourages parents and caregivers to provide healthy choices to children at an early age.

County Supervisor Ron Roberts helped kick off the program at the Vons in Mission Hills Wednesday.

"We want kids to be healthy. We know they do better in school if they get into good eating habits, so we're promoting it -- whole grains, vegetables, fruits. We want to make sure that they know themselves at an early age what's good for them and they make those choices," Roberts said.

All 58 Vons stores in San Diego county will be participating in the healthy eating initiative.
