Share The Facts

Share fun facts and quick stats on the importance of consuming more fruits and vegetables now, and throughout the year, like how to best select, store, savor, and share your favorite produce. Get tips from our Fruits & Veggies Section on fruitsandveggies.org.

Bring Your Phone To The Farmer’s Market

Use video to highlight local, seasonal fruits and veggies, and the farmers that grow and care for them.

Show Off Your Skills

Show off your skills by sharing your fruit and veggie creations on social media. Whether its the sizzling of the veggies in a skillet, or the end result of a beautifully plated fruit salad or pasta dish loaded with veggies, bring your favorite fruit and vegetable recipes to life.  Show how easy it can be and share why you like it, “i.e. I love to add crushed red pepper flakes too mine for added spice!”

Create A Challenge

Create a fruit- and veggie-inspired challenge for your friends and followers. Here are some idea starters…

  • Set up a blind taste test! Jump on the viral trend and set up a blind taste test for your friends using familiar and new fruits and veggies. See who can get the most right!
  • What are your grocery shopping staples? Do you have 5-10 items you always buy when shopping? Get creative and see how many ways you can combine, mix, and match all your staples. Share with your followers and challenge them to do the same!
  • Eating with others fosters connection, provides an opportunity for deeper conversation, and encourages food exploration. Encourage followers to add one more fruit or veg to their weekly (or daily) family (or friend family) meal routine! #squadgoals
  • Create a new fruit and veggie habit! Think about a routine you already do related to meal or snack time – maybe its buying weekly staples, having Taco Tuesday dinners, taking an afternoon break. See where you can add fruits and veggies into it. Share with your friends and followers and share examples of how they can join in on the habit-building fun!
  • What is your best fruit or veggie hack? Do you have a mind-blowing hack that you need to others to know about?! Get the conversation going with your followers and share everyone’s best tips!
