Try Peas...

This month's LifeSPAN programming features peas! Join in the fun at home by trying Parmesan Peas, Peas and Rice, or Quick & Healthy Black-eyed Peas from Michigan Harvest of the Month™ and MyPlate™ These are easy and delicious recipes that the whole family can enjoy making and eating together! Also, click on the Top 10 Ways to Enjoy Peas and try some of the suggestions. My own kids love to eat frozen peas and even claim that they taste like ice cream!

Encourage your child to try fruits and vegetables of all different colors!
