Color Your Family's Plate

| 1 Comment

What department has the most color? Why, the produce department of course! No matter what time of year, the produce department is filled with vibrant reds, greens, oranges, purples, and yellows.


These vibrantly colored fruits and vegetables are bursting with health benefits. Encourage your family to make half of their plates fruits and vegetables. Adding fruits and vegetables to your plate will give it color and also help make half the plate fruits and vegetables.
