With today’s Fruit Grower Report, I’m Bob Larson. National Nutrition Month begins on Monday and Pear Bureau Northwest is taking part, as usual, with their #WhatsInYourFuitBowl initiative to promote their pears and nutrition in general.

The Bureau’s Kathy Stephenson says while pears are a valuable part of any fruit bowl, there are other healthy foods out there …

STEPHENSON … “So, we felt that was a great opportunity for us to amplify the story by working with other fruit suppliers, like California Avocados, the National Mango Board, and this year we’ve added Sunkist, which as you know, is a very important part of a fruit bowl, especially this time of year with citrus being so great and in season.”

And, Stephenson says putting it out on the counter is a great reminder to eat healthy…

STEPHENSON … “I mean, everyday should be ‘What’s in Your Fruit Bowl’ but we’re making March special. And really, it’s National Nutrition Month and it’s an important time for us to think about how we’re supporting our immunity and our healthy bodies and a fruit bowl is a great place to start.”

So, Stephenson says start taking pictures of your fruit bowl …

STEPHENSON … “It’s a sweepstakes so people can enter to be part of the sweepstakes through our social media campaign. They can also post about their own fruit bowl. And, we capture that with #WhatsInYourFruitBowl, all one word. So, people can see what other folks around the country are doing with that campaign as well.”

Tune in tomorrow for more on #WhatsInYourFruitBowl sweepstakes and what you could win.
