In early childhood, kids’ produce consumption meets recommended levels, yet it falls off as they enter school-age years. To ensure kids continue to eat fruits and veggies as a lifelong habit, Have A Plant® is partnering with grocery stores across the country to provide families with hacks that make reaching for produce as routine as brushing teeth!

As you plan for back-to-school this year, check out all the ways the registered dietitians at your favorite retailer can help you get more fruits and veggies into pre-school fuel, lunch boxes, and afterschool snacks, converting produce hacks into habits of health in the next generation.
