So, what exactly is the POP program? POP is targeted toward children ages 12 and under and their parents. It is a produce tasting program designed to make it easier for kids and adults to try new, healthy foods. Sometimes, it is not the kids that are picky and unwilling to try new foods, it’s the parents.
