It's never too early for children to learn that eating all kinds of fruits and vegetables is important to help them grow strong and be healthy! Health experts recommend "5-a-day" - 2 fruit plus 3 vegetable servings each day. Yet researchers report that only 20% of children eat this amount.

By being exposed to a variety of fruits and vegetables, young children can discover different tastes and textures and decide which fruits and vegetables they like most. Giving children healthful choices is one of the best ways to help them develop a positive attitude toward trying foods that are new to them.
