National Fruits & Veggies Month

September is National Fruits & Veggies Month (NFVM), a month-long celebration of everyone’s favorite and flavorful plants–fruits and veggies!

This year’s theme: Have A Plant® Nation will highlight how, at a time when people are craving togetherness and unity, fruit and veggie-filled meals can be that catalyst for: inspiring greater family connections; celebrating the diverse ways we uniquely enjoy foods across the nation; improving public health among all people across America; and elevating how industry (both produce and non-produce) and influencers have come together to advocate for more fruits and veggies at every meal.

Join us to elevate fruit and veggie consumption to a national priority with ready-made resources in our NFVM TOOLKIT! Let’s celebrate this month and beyond, all the fruits and veggies that you know and love–fresh, frozen, canned, dried and 100% juice–that can taste great and are proven to support your health and happiness!

It’s Really That Simple

Eating fruits and vegetables can be fun and easy. Simply add one more fruit or veggie to your everyday routine. It can be any fruit or vegetable – apples, broccoli, canned fruit or salsa cups, a handful of dried fruit on the run, or another fruit or veggie you’ve been meaning to try like zucchini noodles or frozen cauliflower rice. You’ll feel the joy and sweet satisfaction that you are one step closer in your quest to eat fruits and vegetables for a happier, healthier life.

So many people are looking for that superfood that’s good for their mind and body. Some are looking really hard. But foods with those benefits are not off in the distant future. They are not a rare delicacy. They are not some secret. They are fruits and vegetables, of any kind. They’re plants. #haveaplant
