Tuesday, December 8, 2015


Remember ~ your day is what you make it. Let's make it a good one!

Walk down the produce aisle in a supermarket and look at all the colorful fruits and vegetables. What colors do you see? How many fruits and vegetables do you see that are green? How many are yellow? How many are orange? How many are red? Each of these colorful foods protects your body's cells in a different way.

Next time you go to a supermarket, find a fruit or vegetable that you have never had at your home. Have you eaten a mango, kiwi fruit, or pomegranate? Find a fruit or vegetable that you have never tried, and have a new taste adventure!
