a fruit or veggie on every plate

I loved going into the city for Stephanie Sacks' FOOD SOLUTIONS event this week (pictured above). It wasn't so much that there was alot of "new" information, but it was invigorating to be in a room of people who are interested in working towards more healthful family meals.

Here's one tip MaryBeth Augustine shared during the Q&A that is easy for all of us to enact:

start with fruits and vegetables...add them to every meal

We're all in different places when it comes to preparing meals for our families. For some, this tip may be second nature. For others, it may be more of an a-ha moment. Either way, the guarantee is that your child's plate will be more healthful if it's colorful...and the best way to get color on the plate is through a variety of fruits and vegetables. I shot a video this winter where I assembled some "rainbow plates" for my kids that you may find helpful as you put this tip into action.
