Kids need a variety of foods to stay healthy. Vegetables and fruits of different colors have different nutrients, so feeding your family different colors of vegetables and fruits not only brightens the family table, it also ensures that everyone gets the nutrients they need. Let your kids pick out a different color of vegetable or fruit the next time you go to the store or farmers’ market. They’re more likely to try something new when they choose it themselves. And the more colors they try, the more nutrients they’ll get!Watch More Videos
