Celebrated during National Apple Month, Apple Crunch promotes healthy snacking. The event encourages youth and families to eat apples, and apple products (applesauce, juice, and cider) as a healthy snack.
Celebration ideas include featuring apples and apple recipes during school breakfast and lunch; apple tastings; visit to local orchards and farm markets; classroom activities and lessons focusing on apples; and storybook readings of “Johnny Appleseed”.
Help encourage youth and their families to snack healthy by celebrating Apple Crunch on Wednesday, October 23, 2013.
