Eat Your Colors…Earn Free Gifts!
October 2, 2009
I just learned from a CDC report that only 1 in 10 high schoolers are eating fruits and veggies the recommended 5 times a day! 10%? Really? What about elementary and middle schoolers – I don’t know, but can it get worse?
Once a month, I challenge people everywhere to take ONE simple, healthy action – it’s called My Healthy Challenge, and it’s on our home page, left-hand side. There are 5 actions, and #3 and #4 this month have to do with fruits and veggies!
#3. Try veggies in a veggie-stuffed peppers-for a great-tasting snack or side dish. See Del Monte’s healthy recipes for ideas!
#4. Health in a glass! Simply combine in a blender 1 cup skim milk, 1 frozen, sliced banana, and a heaping spoonful of peanut butter.
Pick one of these and do it. Better yet, pick one and have a high schooler join you in the challenge! You have until the end of October to take action – once, twice, or every day! One person who submits their Challenge story will receive a gift package of Del Monte and Healthy Kids Challenge products. To submit your story, go to our My Healthy Challenge page.
