Ideas on Eating More Veggies at Home
Making it affordable:
Purchase what is in season. Fresh fruits and vegetables are usually less expensive when in season and offer their highest nutritional benefits when eaten fresh.
Consider growing your own fruits and vegetables in a garden at home.
Buy canned and frozen fruits and vegetables. They are generally affordable and don't spoil as quickly.
When ordering a kids meal, substitute healthier fruits or vegetables in place of things like french fries.
Help your kids prepare a large batch of trail mix using seeds, nuts and dried fruit. You can keep this on hand so they always have a quick healthy snack available.
Try topping yogurt with some fresh fruits like strawberries and bananas or your favorite granola.
You can easily add vegetables (fresh, frozen, or canned) to soups, stews, pasta dishes, omelets, sandwiches, and stir-fry dishes.
Don’t limit your salads; feel free to add more fruits and vegetables such as peas, corn, beans, strawberries and oranges.
