Healthy Behaviors
Healthy Behaviors

from

Healthy Behaviors is about lifestyle habits, namely healthy eating and physical activity, which have proven connections to lifelong health and disease prevention.

Everyday Well-Being

Post a list of the produce currently in your fridge to remind you to eat your fruits and veggies.

How to do it

Take a look in your refrigerator and make a list of all the fruits and vegetables you find. Post this list somewhere that is easily visible in your kitchen. If you have young children, draw small pictures of what you found, next to the words. (Or ask them to illustrate it!)

Why it matters

It's easy to forget to eat fresh produce if it's jammed in the crisper or has drifted to the back of the refrigerator. When you're hungry and ready to eat a snack or make a meal, a handy list will keep those healthy fruits and vegetables top of mind, so you can benefit from the vitamins, minerals, fiber, and energy that produce provides. As a bonus, you won't waste hard-earned money on produce that goes bad and needs to be thrown out.

Fun fact

The largest fruit salad on record, weighing 8,866 lbs (4,021 kg), was displayed in Peru in 2003.
