There are many benefits to eating well, from disease prevention to overall health and wellness.  That’s why Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and the Nicklaus Children's Hospital Foundation have partnered with Kohl’s Cares on a program called #GiveMe5 to encourage children and families throughout the community to stay active and eat their five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Our partnership brings healthy eating tips and recipes to kids in local schools and to families at various community events throughout the year.
