Shop around. Talk to the farmers about their recommendations and how to store vegetables.
Eat a variety of colors. Different colored fruits and vegetables have different vital nutrients and vitamins.
Get the kids involved. Have your children pick the produce they are more likely to eat.
Prep in advance. Many fruits and vegetables can be washed, cut, and stored beforehand to make week night dinner easier.
