5,2,1,0 Rules for Healthy Kids and Organic Produce


See full size imageDid you know that you can help your kids become healthier by paying attention to the 5, 2, 1, 0 rules recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics?  That means five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, no more than two hours of screen time (TV and computer) a day, at least one hour of aerobic exercise and zero sugary drinks.   

Of course it would be great if all our five servings of fruits and vegetables were organic produce, but that can be costly.  So if you’re pinching pennies (and who isn’t?), stick with buying organic varieties of the produce that has been shown to have the most pesticides: lettuce, spinach, potatoes, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, pears, grapes, apples, bell peppers and peaches.
