Choose to Boost Veggies and Fruit
Over the next several months, our Healthy Kids Community Challenge community will be working to encourage kids and families to reach for more vegetables and fruit. Canada’s Food Guide recommends children aged 2-13 years old eat 4-6 servings of veggies and fruit each day. However, we know kids and adults often fall short of this goal.
Vegetables and fruit are essential to kids’ health. They are a great choice to satisfy hunger any time of the day. Vegetables and fruit help provide children and families with the vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre, and overall energy needed to be physically active and play.
All kinds of groups will be joining forces in our community to support the Choose to boost veggies and fruit theme. There will be new actions, programs, policies, and campaigns aimed at making vegetables and fruit the easy choice for a meal or snack, in all the places kids spend time. Let’s encourage our kids to eat more veggies and fruit!
