More Fruits and Veggies, Please!

Limit packaged fruit (Jell-O and fruit) or canned fruit with syrup.

Plan the night before. If you are off to the zoo tomorrow, get the lunch boxes out, wash the grapes and mini carrots.

When your kids get home from school, have the sliced fruit on the table and eat this snack together.

Limit fruit juice as many brands have added sugar. Although 100% with added vitamin C seems like a good choice, real fruit is still a better choice (real fruit contains fiber, vitamins and minerals).

Try something new: grilled asparagus with prosciutto.

Try taste testing events with different veggies and dips and different varieties of fruit.
