Promote Fruits & Vegetables
Serve a fruit or vegetable at every snack.
Fruits and vegetables are important foods to include in a healthy diet, but many children (and adults!) eat much less than the recommended 5 or more servings each day. Fruits and vegetables are packed with lots of vitamins and nutrients. They are also a great source of fiber, which helps you feel full.
Help children develop healthy habits by serving a fruit or vegetable at every snack. Cooking activities taste tests are a way to encourage children to eat a variety of different fruits and vegetables so they get all the vitamins and nutrients they need to be healthy. Take time to talk to kids about the kinds of fruits and vegetables they eat at home try to incorporate them into your snacks and activities.
