Make a Game Out of Eating Vegetables

Healthy DelightIt’s important to eat a variety of foods from all food groups.  This is especially important when eating fruits and vegetables.  A fun activity to do at home with your kids is to keep track of how many different fruits and vegetables they consume that are of different colors (red, orange-yellow, green, blue-purple, and white).  Take a piece of paper and divide it into seven columns (one for each day of the week). Help your child mark the appropriate day with the colors of fruits and vegetables eaten that day. You can use markers, crayons, or colorful stickers.  Also at the grocery store, try different and fun food to try like eggplant, star fruit, kiwi, or sweet potatoes.
