June is National Fruit and Vegetable Month!
To celebrate this delicious and nutritious time of year, here are a few of our favorite fruit and veggie activities for you and your family.
Visit a Farmer’s Market- have children be on the lookout for a certain colored new fruit or veggie to try or make a scavenger hunt to find a rainbow of produce.
Make Fruit Wands– Stack a variety of cut up fruits on a kabob stick and top with a slice of star fruit for a magical and tasty treat.
Plant a Veggie Garden– Planting vegetables can be a great way to increase your child’s interest in trying new, healthy foods. Take a look at some of our tips here for getting started.
Veggie Builders– Make a variety of veggie buildings, animals and people out of cut up vegetables, tooth picks and cream cheese for the “glue”.
Make Fruit “Sundaes”- Layer fruit, low fat yogurt and crunchy cereal or granola in a pretty glass and enjoy!
