Produce Challenge FAQs
What is the Produce Challenge?
Let’s start by saying what the Produce Challenge is not. It is NOT a restrictive diet or a rigid plan that only health nuts can follow. The Produce Challenge is a guide to seasonal produce that contains fun challenges, positive encouragement, tips, tricks, recipes, and facts that’ll help you and your family eat more fruits and veggies.
How does the Produce Challenge work?
Join the Challenge and receive regular e-newsletters that contain family-friendly recipes and produce tips & tutorials that coordinate with the monthly Produce Challenge calendar. These resources will help you get more fruits and veggies into your diet. You’ll also learn about how your food is grown and hear from other Produce Moms just like you.
Who should take the Produce Challenge?
- People who want to eat more fruits and vegetables.
- Families that are tired of eating the same few fruits and vegetables day after day, week after week.
- Individuals who are looking for new and exciting ways to cook & bake with fruits and vegetables.
- Parents who want strategies to help their children eat more produce.
- Parents who are looking for kid-approved recipes.
- Individuals wanting to learn more about where their food comes from and how it is grown.
What if I’m on a special diet or have diet-restrictions?
If you’re on a special diet or have diet restrictions, don’t worry! The Produce Challenge plays well with all diets: Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, organic, conventional, nut-free, no problem! The challenge isn’t about changing your current diet, it’s simply about adding more produce to it, whatever it is. If there’s a produce item on the calendar that you can’t eat, simply replace it with another one you can. As long as you’re eating fruits and veggies every day and trying new and different items, you’re doing it right!
