I came across this awesome video challenge on the USDA's MyPlate website and wanted to get the entire Child Care Info community participating!
Here is the challenge: Create short videos (about 30 seconds) demonstrating how you are adding fruits and veggies to your diet without breaking the bank. Get really creative...the judges are looking for videos that are inspiring, educational, fun, easy, and cost-effective ways that will motivate others to add more fruits and veggies to their diet too.
There are three categories to choose from:
- Tips for kids
- Tips for eating at home
- Tips for eating away from home
The goal of this challenge is to bring more awareness to USDA's MyPlate and their mission to help Americans understand the importance of making half their plate abundant in healthy fruits and vegetables.
