Strawberry Facts...Did You Know?
Serve some up!
Sliced strawberries can be added to cereal, yogurt, fruit salads or green salads, blended into smoothies, or used as a topping for pancakes or waffles. What other ways do you like to enjoy strawberries?
Half a cup.
Half a cup of sliced strawberries provides an excellent source of vitamin C, a nutrient necessary for growth and development. The human body can't make vitamin C, so it's important to eat foods with vitmain C every day!
Strawberries do well in container gardens and can be grown in pots inside or on porches. SNAP benefits on the Michigan Bridge Card can be used to purchase food producing plants, including strawberries.
Serve some up!
Half a cup.
Berry Bounce! (adapted from Grow It, Try It, Like It!™)
Place the arms, crossed at the wrists, on the top of the head with the hands extended out like little green leaf caps. Ready, and...bounce!
Place each hand, palm side down, on the top of the opposite shoulder (right hand on left shoulder, left hand on right shoulder) with the arms crossed in front of the chest and elbows pointed out like little bumps on a raspberry.
Place each hand on the opposite elbow, with arms circled in front of the abdomen so that they're smooth and rounded, like a blueberry.
