Trying to encourage your kids to eat more fruits and veggies? Here's our favorite PEACH of advice!πŸ‘
Have your kids get hands on in the cooking! Not only are you helping build their confidence and self-esteem, you are also encouraging interest in trying new foods. When kids help out in the kitchen, they have a better sense of where their food comes from and are proud of what they create.
The best part is get both quality time and a delicious meal! 🍽

Ever wonder how a Superhero fuels his/her body? With fruits and veggies, of course! πŸ₯•πŸ“πŸŒπŸ₯¦

πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ This #GlobalRunningDay, we want to remind you that eating fruits and vegetables is an important part of a fueling and supporting a healthy and active lifestyle!

Eating the right kind of foods before and after physical activity can help kids perform their best...like Superhero Strawberry pictured above! Here are some tips!:
β€’ Eat a healthy breakfast to start the day off with energy. Whole-grain cereals or whole-grain muffins and fruits provide the body with carbohydrates for energy.
β€’ Eat lean protein after exercising to help the body recover. Protein is an important nutrient that repairs and builds muscles.

ZOOMing in on what our Austin team has been up to! πŸ’»πŸ”πŸ€©

Our staff and interns have been hosting virtual cooking classes/demos for all of our 18 schools! πŸ‘©β€πŸ³

We had great turnout for the April demos where the team and kids & families who joined made Hulk Smoothies together and then learned about how to cook with more leafy greens. For the May demos, the team focused on making healthy desserts, including fruity parfaits, beet brownies, and banana ice cream! YUM!!

Fact time! πŸ™Œ

Asparagus, part of the lily family, is a green, spring vegetable that must be harvested by hand. Asparagus spears may be very thin and delicate or thick and dense. White asparagus is grown by covering the plants with soil so they are not exposed to sunlight. Asparagus is a good source of vitamins C and A, and is also high in folate.πŸ’š

"Let's be a fruit and vegetable" πŸ‰πŸ₯¦πŸ‡

It's National Eat More Fruits and Vegetables Day, so we thought we'd share a few facts about why you should add more fruits and veggies to your day:
🍊 Fruits and veggies are rich in vitamins and minerals that help you feel healthy and energized.
πŸ… Eating plenty of fruits and veggies may help reduce the risk of many diseases, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and some cancers.
🌽 Fruits and veggies provide fiber that helps fill you up and keeps your digestive system happy.

CHALLENGE: Try a new way to enjoy your fruits and veggies this weekend! Baked, grilled, steamed, mixed...Then comment below on how it went! πŸ˜„
