Celebrate National Nutrition Month in Oregon!

March is National Nutrition Month and we want you to help us celebrate by promoting
Fruits and Veggies-More Matters®.

Get Smart!

To mark the one-year anniversary of Fruits and Veggies-More Matters, the Center 
for Disease Control and Prevention and Produce for Better Health Foundation have
 created a new series of consumer tips under the slogan, "Get Smart! Fruits and 
Veggies-More Matters." The tips are designed to help moms, "Get Smart!" in overcoming
traditional barriers to purchasing, preparing, and serving more fruits and veggies
at every eating occasion. Topics include

* As You Shop
* In Your Family Dinner
* Eating on the Go
* Back to School
* On a Budget
* Entertaining

You can download and view these materials here [http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=0013I7PKWRpPrgo1I299r5gizFDsYiFhMxMrfYVPz28L_4EiKVjrnJjbR_tldYsePDLHTwVoPxVw_9UsBM61eORxTOC4_2pH30l3SVxflXS8sfOpcsxOVLskexxBpFr8MCJDgUdKawVzJW4tucpj47Hmg==].
