Eat More Fruits and Veggies

Every step toward eating more fruits and veggies helps you and your family live healthier. Here are 5 ways to help mom and dad cook with fruits and vegetables:

  • Clean Those Greens – Help prepare dinner by cleaning the fruits and vegetables before they’re cooked.
  • The Best Pick – When shopping, ask permission to pick a new fruit or vegetable for the family to try.
  • Measure Up – Make sure your family is eating the proper amount of fruits and vegetables by using measuring cups. You can find the recommended amount for each family member here: https://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org/myplate-and-what-is-a-serving-of-fruits-and-vegetables.
  • Very A-PEEL-ing – With a parent’s supervision peel and slice carrots, cucumbers, potatoes and more. 
  • ‘Tis the seasoning – Sprinkle herbs, spices and other seasonings on vegetables to give them an even better flavor.
