The New York Mets Foundation and American Heart Association partnered together to launch Eat Smart with the Mets, a nutrition program that encourages healthy eating for young students and provide nutritional knowledge throughout our local community.
To kick off the initiative, the Mets and AHA provided Color Your Heart Healthy placemats and cookbooks for the students participating in the program.
Throughout the school year the Mets Foundation works with the schools to engage students, teachers and parents in different events that will inspire a healthy lifestyle. More than 1,000 students will be participating in the program.
The Mets are proud to have partnered with the following two schools:
- East Elmhurst Community School - Queens
- PS 114 Belle Harbor - Queens
