Fruits and Vegetables Galore—Helping Kids (and Their Parents) Eat More!

June is the month to celebrate the fruits and vegetables...from asparagus to zucchini and every (green, red, white, pink or black) bean in between. 

Nourse Farm is certainly pleased to mark National Fruit and Vegetable Month with you.  Earlier this month, we began participation in the Westborough Farmer’s Market and three weeks ago we launched the 2016 CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).  Needless to say, we certainly enjoy providing Westborough and its environs fresh, local fruit and veggie offerings. 

We believe that it is our responsibility to support you to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables on your plate or in your bowl every day.   As an integral part of our Nourse Farm website, we showcase the Food Matters page, a central location for information about our different harvest products.  We feature a particular “focus food”, its complimentary recipe and suggest other resources to provide you “food for thought”.  We welcome you to submit recipes, ideas, tips and tricks that help us all enjoy the Nourse Farm harvest even more.  Be sure to ask about our new Kids' Activity sheet that focuses on creating a healthy plate. 

For additional ideas about ways to incorporate fruits and vegetables every day, visit Fruits and Veggies, More Matters or the United States Department of Agriculture.  Nourse Farm would like to know how you celebrate fruits and vegetables this month (or any month).  Share your thoughts and ideas with us in the space below or with an email to catherine@noursefarm.com.  Follow us and let us know your favorite F and Vs on Facebook or Instagram. 

Eat well to be well...Catherine
