Fruit and Veggies – More Matters Month
September is Fruit & Veggies – More Matter Month. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) promotes healthier eating through this awareness campaign. Look for fresh, in-season fruits and vegetables like grapes, pomegranates, squash and Swiss chard. The CDC recommends filling half of your plate with fruits and vegetables. Find healthy recipe ideas, tips and facts about fruits and vegetables on the Fruits & Veggies – More Matters web site: http://bit.ly/19fIsmY. There’s even a Food Champs game and information center meant just for kids.
Make the most of the focus on childhood obesity in September and use these resources to create healthy changes among the children in your community.
