Step Up to the Plate!
The Fruit & Vegetable Challenge
Overview: Step up to the plate and include at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Putting produce first can reduce the risk of obesity, heart disease, some cancers, diabetes, and hypertension... while increasing energy. Fill half of your plate with a rainbow of colors from red, orange, yellow/white, green, and blue/violet to gather up a wide range of nutrients. The fruit and vegetable challenge will help you to score big by picking up the pace to positive health. Each week, members that accumulate the designated number of servings will be eligible for a raffle.
