Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
June 29, 2020
National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month
Children should eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Many children prefer the crunch of raw food – especially popular are apples, pears, carrots, broccoli, celery and cucumbers. Use your imagination to serve cut up vegetables in an interesting way– for example, make a figure with carrot stick arms and legs, a celery body and a round of cucumber for a head. You can also grow your own vegetables with the children. Radishes are ready to eat about 3 weeks after planting and grow easily in a small amount of space.
