We’ve all been told: Eat your vegetables!– and for good reason. Fresh, frozen and canned fruits and vegetables are full of important vitamins, minerals, water and fiber that help keep your body healthy! It’s important to include five or more servings each day. Fruits and veggies help prevent certain types of diseases (including cancer). They help give you a healthy complexion. They help make blood and they keep bones and muscles strong.

Parents can be good role models for their children in all things, including eating fruits and vegetables. Parents also need to know that it may take some time for children to try new foods. Don’t force it! Try offering new fruits and vegetables prepared in a variety of ways. Take your children with you when you visit a mobile or farmer’s market. Have your children help pick out new foods. Another thing we’ve all been told: Try it, you will like it!
