PACK is an educational program aimed at encouraging kids to eat more fruits and vegetables while at home and school. The program can be implemented at anytime at home or throughout the school year. A main part of the program is to encourage children who purchase or pack lunch to include a fruit or vegetable of the day. In addition, parents across the country are encouraged to “pack” more fruits and vegetables, in a variety of colors and forms, into their children’s lunch boxes and to follow the fruit and vegetable color schedule at home for meals and snacks.
