Food and nutrition play such an important role in developing the body and minds of children. The COCOA packs provide a little extra for families and most importantly, children who might need a little more. When asked what their favorite part of a COCOA is, a Kindergartner, age 5, replied, “COCOA packs are great because it gives us food on the weekends.”
