TWINSBURG FOOD SERVICE - FRUIT AND VEGGIE PATROL
One day each month—the Fruit and Veggie Patrol will stop by Wilcox and Bissell’s lunch to catch our students eating their fruits and vegetables. If caught, they receive a fun prize!
What counts as a fruit or veggie?
Whether you pack a lunch or buy one, any fruit or vegetable counts! Fresh fruit, dried fruit, canned fruit, 100% Fruit Juice, salad, veggies on the side, veggies in a sandwich, veggies in a pasta, soup, casserole, or other item.
Goal of the Program: To promote and encourage fruit and vegetable consumption among students.
Why Fruits and Veggies? The program is a fun way to get students excited about eating healthy in an effort to help meet the 2010 Dietary Guidelines developed by the USDA which calls for a decreased consumption of refined grains, excess sugars, and fats, and an increased fruit and vegetable intake.
