Take the cancer prevention pledge with your children and grandchildren:
I pledge to:
Help my child prepare this month’s recipe for Bean and Veggie Enchiladas. *See link for recipe.
Try one new vegetable each week.
Make a meal that contains only plant foods – vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans – and no meat.
Incorporate different colored vegetables into our daily meals and snacks.
Tell each other what our favorite vegetable is – and give two reasons why.
It’s never too early to eat a healthy diet that includes plenty of cancer-fighting plant foods like vegetables for lower cancer risk. In fact, research suggests that new foods are even better accepted at ages 2 to 4 than they are at ages 4 to 8.
