Most people know that eating fruits and vegetables is important for good health, but most of us still aren’t getting enough. This September, let’s participate in Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month. Eating a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and fruits can help you lower your risk for heart disease and some types of cancer, maintain or reach a healthy weight, and keep your body strong and active. Here are some ideas to help you and your family fit more fruits and vegetables into your day. Try keeping a bowl of fruit handy where the whole family can see it, cut up fruits and veggies ahead of time so they’re ready for quick, healthy snacks, and challenge your family to try a new veggie or fruit every week. Remember, eating more fruits and veggies can be fun and worth it!

Yellow sticky note hanging on bulletin board that reads Stop Wasting Food!Does the disaster in Texas by Hurricane Harvey make you feel a little more grateful for the things you have? Let’s always be mindful not to be wasteful. Reduce your food waste by planning a weekly menu, making a grocery list, or freezing extra food. This could save you big money each year! Post Let’s Talk Trash to inform students and staff about food loss and waste. Learn tips on how to Plan Your Weekly Meals and check out the USDA’s FoodKeeper App to alert you to use food items before they are likely to spoil.

Trying different things can appear challenging such as being a new student at a school or taking a class for the first time. You have to be patient when introducing new things. The same goes for food. It may take more than a few tries for a child to accept an unfamiliar item. Check out these Resources for picky eaters and Handling a “choosy” eater.
