National Fruit and Vegetable Month

So, with this month being National Fruit and Vegetable Month, let’s focus on the importance of eating healthy. By celebrating this month, we’re focused on adding new healthy choices to our diet.

National Fruit and Vegetable Month

In the first place, half of your meal should be either a fruit or vegetable. When you’re eating fruit and vegetables, your body will thank you. Of course, each step you take in eating more fruit and vegetables, you will perform with more energy.

Are your kids not eating their vegetables? Since children’s tastes are different from adults, a little help from us can help a child develop a love of fruit and veggies.

Because fast food makes up a lot of children’s diets, lets gradually substitute vegetables for french fries. In addition, you can add vegetables to soup, pasta dishes, sauces, pies, and bread. Moreover, most kids won’t realize they are even eating more vegetables.

National Fruit and Vegetable Month Involvement

By being creative, you can get your kids involved in eating healthier. Also, you can use various cookie cutters and have your kids create shapes out of vegetables and fruit. In addition, you can add a topping to the vegetables or fruit. For example, add peanut butter, cherries, or raisins.

Below is fun seasonable shapes to get the entire family involved in making some delicious and healthy food.

Indeed, kids like to be involved. Give your child a project. By having your kid involved in making a meal, they will feel more important. You can have your kids peel corn from their husk. Also, they can shell peas or wash fruit or vegetables.

Of course, kids need to have food introduced to them regularly to acquire a taste. Be patient. As your child tastes different fruit and vegetables prepared differently, they will acquire a taste.

National Fruit and Vegetable Month Nutritional Value

The more fruit and vegetables you eat, the healthier you will be. Moreover, fruits are vital to your health. Many fruits contain fiber, potassium and vitamin C. Vegetables also have nutrients important to your health. Most vegetables are low in calories, fat, sodium and contain no cholesterol.

Hence, diets that contain fruit and vegetables can reduce weight gain, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Furthermore, fruits and vegetables increase bone strength which is important to all sports participants. Because fruits and vegetables come in so many colors, your kids can feel like they’re eating the rainbow.

As always, I look forward to your comments.

Happy National Fruit and Vegetable Month!
