Studies show that parents who encourage their child to eat fruits and vegetables actually eat more fruits and vegetables themselves (4.1 servings vs. 2.7 servings per day). At home, parents can: En- gage kids in the grocery shop- ping, from putting their fruit and vegetable favorites on the list to bagging their choices in the grocery store's produce sec- tion. Keep a fresh fruit bowl on the table or counter, and keep easy-to-grab-and-eat vegeta- bles in the refrigerator. They can serve two vegetables with dinner. The majority of children eat lunch made at school. Parents and guardians should know what their children are eating at schoole where they spend much of their day. Recent pro- grams in schools show that when fruits and vegetables are added to the food choices throughout the day -- includ- ing salad bars at lunch and snacks in the classroom chil- dren and teens eat them and get closer to eating the amount of fruits and vegetables needed for good health. Parents have the power to make sure there is an abun- dance of appealing fruit and vegetable choices offered at schools, in cafeterias, in the classroom, and in vending ma- chines and school stores. For example, parents can: Visit the school at lunchtime to see what's offered as part of the lunch program and find out what's available in vending machines, school stores, and as part of fundraisers. Make their healthful desires known to their teachers, or help them write a letter to do this themselves. Bring fresh fruit treats for birthday and other parties at school -what kid wouldn't love a big slice of watermelon for someone's birthday, or a cup of fresh, juicy berries? National 5 A Day Month in September is the perfect time of year for the whole family to learn more about the impor- tance of eating fruits and veg- etables, and work together to meet the 5 to 9 A Day recom- mendations.
