  1. We live in a colder climate than Florida, but when the weather allows we always go to the Farmers Market, visit local farms, and we even grow some of our own veggies and fruits! Great post.

  2. These are great tips! We sometimes fall into a rut, but overall we love eating healthy. The kids wouldn’t mind eating junk, but they adore fruit.

  3. I live in western PA so we don’t have fresh fruit and veggies year ’round. But I do try to get what I can at the grocery store and we do buy frozen fruit for our smoothies. One thing that my kids LOVE is fresh corn on the cob and frozen just doesn’t cut it. Can’t wait for summer time!

  4. These are great tips. I love fruit flavored water. We don’t have farmers markets all year, so I rely on sprouts for fresh produce.

  5. It’s definitely not easy to find really good produce by me in the winter, but in summer I love hitting up all of the local farms and markets. Or growing my own in the garden!

  6. Love the reminder to get the family involved in meal prep – everyone is happier when they’re involved up front!
