MyPlate Fruit & Veggies Video Challenge: Week 1

During this past fall, the USDA hosted a video contest for kids. The challenge: create a 30-second video with tips for making half your plate fruits and veggies, without busting the bank. We’re excited about all these kids and their great ideas. Kids motivating other kids (and adults!) to eat more fruit and vegetables is a three-star idea.

We want to add our voice to the cheer the contest winners for their great videos. Stop by each Wednesday for the next few months to check out a featured contest winner, or pop right over to the USDA contest website and watch them all!

Although we’d like to show the video here, the USDA won’t be able to share these videos outside of their contest website.  Follow the link to see what kids have to say about healthier eating.

First Prize:

On the Go Snack Boxes

A middle school girl with a busy life explains how prepping fruit and veggie snack boxes on grocery shopping day helps her get an easy, healthy, affordable snack every day of the week.
