A Creative Way To Inspire Kids To Eat Healthy

How can we get children excited about eating fruits and vegetables?

Lisa Helfman, founder of Brighter Bites, joined HuffPost Life host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani to discuss how a food co-op is an effective way to build healthy eating habits in children.

“In Brighter Bites, we go into the schools in the inner city and food deserts that don’t have a lot of access to fresh fruit and vegetables,” said Helfman. “We do food distribution where we send home 50 servings, 30 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables -- everything from apples and bananas to kale and spinach, you name it.”
