We continue our series promoting healthy behaviors to be implemented and tracked for an entire month (and hopefully beyond). In September, in celebration of Fruits and Veggies – More Matters Month, the behavior to implement is to eat more fruits and veggies. It’s important to make fresh fruits and vegetables easily accessible for kids to grab when they are looking for snacks. Studies show that eating at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day increase your chances for a long and healthy life! To assist with the increased fruit and veggie consumption, you can download and print your free September Behavior Tracking Sheet and use in your home, summer camp setting, or childcare center to encourage and track behavior change.
Watch as Hardy Heart and the Guys sing about eating five fruits and vegetables a day:
