Fruits and Veggies Challenge- We WON!

We never realized how little veggies were really getting into our daily meals until we began this challenge. As a family of six, with four children, it's tough at times to get your children to eat their vegetables. 1st we let them take charge. During the course of this project, one of our children who normally would be in tears if asked to eat his greens, now blends them with fruits and makes his favorite treat...a smoothie. Now when we look at our plates we ask ourselves did we make them 1/2? This challenge has changed the way we eat. Thank you USDA and our PE teacher Mrs. Nash!
