Be sneaky. Adding finely grated carrots or zucchini to pasta sauce, meat loaf, chili or a stew is a simple way to get an extra serving of vegetables.

Try something new. It’s easy to get tired of apples, bananas, and grapes. Try a kiwi, mango, fresh pineapple, or some of the more exotic choices now found in many grocery stores.

Be a big dipper. Try dipping vegetables into hummus or another spread. Slather peanut butter on a banana or slices of apple.
