Start By:

  • Fill up half of your plate with colorful fruits and vegetables.  Fruits and vegetables are full of fiber & packed with vitamins to keep you full and feeling your best. 

  • Choose fresh, frozen, or canned fruits and vegetables.  All forms count & are packed with flavor and nutrition.

  • Snack on frozen fruit! Peel bananas or grapes for a refreshing snack.

  • Visit your farmer’s market!  Buying local produce is less expensive, fresher, and full of flavor.

  • Get Moving! Make physical activity part of your daily routine—take the stairs or park farther away. Choose activities you enjoy doing. Take a walk in a park or your neighborhood, throw a Frisbee, jump rope, or ride a bike. 

  • Don’t forget to sip smarter. Choose water instead of sugary drinks!
