Kickin’ It With Kids

Aug. 172022

If you ask an adult who doesn’t eat many fruits and vegetables to describe their eating habits in childhood, they will likely tell you that they grew up not eating fruits and vegetables either. A recent study highlights that the food messages and healthy eating encouragement we receive in our youth, affects how we eat as adults. It’s with this important impact in mind that we need to keep encouraging children to eat more fruits and vegetables. With color, crunch and an assortment of flavors and textures to work with, it’s easy to make eating fruits and veggies fun for kids.
