Eat Your Vegetables Day

Date when held : Always June 17th

Strategically created in the middle of National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month, this day is the perfect opportunity to re-introduce a healthy portion of vegetables into your diet. No doubt about it, Eat Your Vegetables Day was created to promote a more healthy diet.......for life!

On this day, you are encouraged to eat vegetables for every meal, and for a snack. Better still, try to be a vegetarian....for the day. Short of that, any additional vegetables at meal time today will honor the event, as well as make you a little healthier.

We encourage parents to let the kids help with dinner, preparing the salad and vegetables. Along the way, you tell your kids a little about the importance of vegetables for a long and healthy life.

Origin of Eat Your Vegetables Day:
We discovered no substantial information about the origin of this day. We can only speculate that a medical or health organization or group created this day to promote a healthy diet and lifestyle.

    Love my veggies! Like the last post, I can't wait for fresh tomatoes & other veggies to be ready in our garden.

    Veggies are good. I get 7 servings of veggies and 3 servings of fruit everyday. That does not include the legumes I eat because I consider them to be a source of protein, or the avocado either because I consider them a source of good fats. Yes veggies are good. emoticon

    Thanks for the reminder. I am vegan so I eat my veggies all the time - and my boys enjoy veggies too.
