Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health

  1. Smoothies. Schools back in session. No time in the morning for breakfast? No problem. Whip up a yummy smoothie and know you sent them to school ready for the day. Try Peach & Banana Milkshake, Berry Banana Smoothie, or After-School Strawberry Shake.
  2. Broccoli. Kids tend to snub what they don’t think they like. Try Broccoli Mandarin Orange Salad, Crazy Curly Broccoli Bake, and Broccoli Vegetable Medley for the win and change their mind!
  3. Sloppy Garden Joes. Put a new twist on an old kid favorite. They will love it and you will love getting more veggies into them. Recipe: Sloppy Garden Joes.
  4. Wrap. Kids love fun sandwiches. Mix up their favorites or create new favorites in a fun, whole-grain tortilla. Try making Cosmic Cucumber Wrap, or Wrap-it-up.
  5. Spinach Pesto Pasta. A colorful side dish kids will enjoy or add chicken on top for a meal. Recipe: Spinach Pesto Pasta.
