Radish Routine #1 Eat a Fruit or Veggie with Every Meal or Snack
Practice makes perfect! This simple mantra is easy to repeat and
helps kids develop the habit of eating healthy. It’s hard to
measure how many servings of vegetables are in a soup, or to
track what your child ate all day. Did they eat two servings? Two
cups? How can you keep up?
At Food Literacy Center, we’ve simplified our guidelines for
fruit and vegetable consumption so that even kids can remember.
It’s easy: eat a fruit or veggie with every meal or snack. Are
you having eggs for breakfast? Add some diced peppers. Do you
like burritos for lunch? Stuff them with sweet potatoes. By
including a fruit or veggie every time you eat, you’ll build a
radish routine worth repeating!
