What's Your Favorite Fruit or Vegetable? - The Produce Moms

It’s so easy to become passionate about culture.  Everyone has a favorite movie, a favorite song, a favorite dinner, a favorite cheese, a favorite flavor of birthday cake, and more.  Fruits & Vegetables are no exception!

I have a favorite.  You have a favorite.  And all the Indiana Heroes participating in my Indianapolis Public Schools healthy eating campaign have favorites!

It is my honor to announce the favorites & corresponding heroes for FIND YOUR FAVORITE

Do you share a favorite with one of these Indiana Heroes?  My kids were certainly excited to hear that Boomer liked cantaloupe – which hero & his/her favorite brings a smile to your child’s face?  I can’t wait to see how the students of Indianapolis Public Schools respond to this campaign!  I am certain that by claiming a favorite, each of these heroes will inspire a child to eat more produce.   Maybe a little boy who dreams of being a firefighter will try a peach for the first time ever because of Find Your Favorite.  Or a little girl who plays basketball will never look at bananas the same thanks to hometown hero, Katie Douglas.  And the countless Indianapolis Colts fans who will forever associate pears with defensive rockstar Dwight Freeney.  These are powerful people helping me spread a very important message.  I love them all & cannot thank them enough for joining forces with The Produce Mom & participating in Find Your Favorite.

What’s YOUR Favorite?  Find Your Favorite.

xoxo Produce Mom
