September used to be recognized as National 5 A Day. Is this still being done this year? If so, has the name changed to the new one? I write a monthly newsletter that goes out to 2000 seniors. I try to keep current on national awareness month observations.
Thanks for asking! September is now Fruits & Veggies More Matters Month. The Federal guidelines now suggest more than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day for most people, so our new slogan and logo reflect that change. You can find tips to include in your newsletter in several areas of our website including “Why Fruits and Veggies” – get to it by clicking here.
