"Eat Your Vegetables Day" is June 17

Eat Your Vegetables Day





When : Always June 17th

Strategically created in the middle of National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month, this day is the perfect opportunity to re-introduce a healthy portion of vegetables into your diet. No doubt about it, Eat Your Vegetables Day was created to promote a more heallthy diet.......for life!

On this day, you are encouraged to eat vegetables for every meal, and for a snack. Better still, try to be a vegetarian....for the day. Short of that, any additonal vegetables at meal time today will honor the event, as well as make you a little healthier. We encourage parents to let the kids help with dinner, preparing the salad and vegetables. Along the way, you tell your kids a little about the importance of vegetables for a long and healthy life.

Yes, it really is a special set-aside-day! I heard it when I was listening to Mary sue Milliken and Susan Fenniger (The Two Hot Tamales), as they have a Sunday radio show all about cooking. They also gave this silly joke:

What do you call a stalk of celery when it's blushing?

Rhubarb.

I guess this means that my daughter will have to make a carrot cake for our granddaughter Hannah's 4th birthday, which will be this June 17th.

Thanks jkath and middie! I have some older pictures of Hannah (and her brother Andrew) in the photo gallery, but I will have to scan their newest (and totally ADORABLE) pictures for you. Maybe I can get that done tonight. She has just grown up so much! A year ago she was wearing size 2 clothes and now she is in size 5! Her mom did that. For a year her feet didn't grow at all (yes, this is on topic! You'll see!), and I was starting to worry. She was wearing size 8 clothes, so I started making a lot of size 10 clothes. The stinker ended up bypassing size 10 altogether and went right into 12s. I guess that is why her feet stopped growing that year. All her energy went into her body growing!
