10, 4 & more ways to celebrate fresh fruit and vegetable month

June is Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month and I’ve rounded up some of my favorite colorful NutritionEducationStore.com products to brighten up your office, classroom, cafeteria, bulletin boards, and health fair tables. Take a look at 10, 4, and more!

  • 10…refers to the Foil Fruit and Vegetable Shaped Balloon Set, which includes (you guessed it!) ten vibrantly colored mylar balloons ranging in size from 18 to 39 inches. Kids and adults alike will be attracted to these happy balloons (many have smiley faces). Once you have their attention, dazzle with fruit and veggie info from MyPlate.gov. The balloons are reusable, or you can give them away as prizes.
  • 4…if you don’t have space for ten big balloons, consider this set of four fruit shaped mylar balloons! These brightly colored, 18-inch balloons are just as eye-catching – they’ll make everyone want to try new fruits over the hot summer months. Use them as prizes or keep them to use again and again.
  • More…here are two additional favorites:
    • Balloons are fun, but the Colors of Health poster is truly a work of art and just as captivating. People will stop and look at each of the 16 fruits and vegetables pictured. Print out copies of the free PDF fruit and vegetable quiz that comes with the poster and you’re ready to go!
    • The Nature’s Fast Food poster features an award-winning photograph of cherries and peaches. The luscious summer tree fruits make your mouth water and some people may swear they can smell the aroma of freshly-picked fruit. The message is clear – no processed food can come close to nature’s finest!

Enjoy Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month!
