Instructions

1

With Crayola Colored Pencils on index cards, write the names of fruits and vegetables that you really like or are willing to try. List one on each card.

2

Research each fruit and vegetable. Find out what it looks like, the recommended serving size for someone your age, grams of fiber, vitamins it contains, and calories per serving. When is each one in season where you live? Take notes and make sketches on your cards, then alphabetize your cards.

3

In a journal, draw colorful pictures of your produce with Crayola Washable Markers. Record the data you researched about each one. Leave a blank page or two between each entry so you can add new fruits and vegetables to your notebook.

4

What can you do with your new knowledge? Make wise choices for meals and snacks. Shop with your family and compare selections. Plan meals together so everyone can stay healthy...better yet-grow your own!
