Yesterday Julia and I were watching a Signing Time video (the 6th in the series) and they had a clever song about eating your “5 Fruits a Day”.
My first thought was what a cute song and then I started to think hmmm… we should probably start teaching Jackson to count up the number of fruits and veggies he eats in a day. I think it would be a fun way to help encourage him to eat healthily.
I went and checked out the 5aday website and noticed all the fun tools they have to help teach kids about nutrition.
It also made me think of the samples of FruitaBu organic fruit flats that we were sent to test recently. They’ve been designed with kids in mind. They’ve got a fun name – “FruitaBu Organic Smoooshed Fruit” – and fun packaging that attracts kids attention.
I’m happy to see that some companies and even the government are starting to make positive marketing decisions to help promote health for our children.
