"Produce Man" a.k.a. "Produce Paulie" has been visiting elementary schools in Danville and Boyle County to talk to children about the importance of eating five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.
He is sponsored and performed by Danville/Boyle County Healthy Communities Coalition members Julie Steber, dietitian at the Boyle County Health Department; Donna Clore, Boyle County extension agent; Nancy Ricker, dietitian at McDowell Wellness Center; Jane Boyd, community investment director for Heart of Kentucky United Way; and Bryan Lanham, wellness counselor at McDowell Wellness Center.
To help you and your children or grandchildren get at least five a day, try some of the following suggestions in addition to serving fruits and vegetables at all meals.
* Drink 100 percent fruit and vegetable juices in place of high-calorie drinks, such as soft drinks. Remember, one serving is 6 ounces or 3/4 of a cup.
