Here's an excuse to try something new: a whole month dedicated to produce. Take the kids to a southeast Michigan farmers market – then try these food ideas.

National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month Ideas

(page 1 of 7)

June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month! If you're looking for ways to help your family eat more produce, this month is the perfect time to try it. You'll find fresh fruits and vegetables at your local farmers market. Produce picked in season, and at the peak of ripeness, tastes better than those flown in from far-off locales or even shipped from miles away. You might explain that to your little one as she's eyeing the berries or carrots. After all, is there anything better than juicy, sweet Michigan strawberries or peaches in the summer?

To make the most of the month, we've included a few ideas to get you started.
