Pledge to Your Health

It’s not always easy to eat well, but it’s important. I know sometimes I’d rather tear into a bag of potato chips for an afternoon snack instead of reaching for the piece of fruit I brought to work. But then I remember how much less energized I feel after eating salty, processed foods. I’m fortunate to have been raised with an abundance of fresh produce, and I’m trying to keep up that habit as an adult. Now, I have a tool to help me remember!

This month, the Produce for Better Health Foundation launched a pledge drive to increase fruit and vegetable consumption. September is National Child Obesity Awareness Month—a reminder that our diets can always be improved by fresh, natural foods.

I’ve taken the pledge to fill half of my plate with fruit and vegetables every day, and I encourage you to pledge, too. It’s easy! You can choose from three levels. Take a step to ensure your health today—you can sign up here.
