Lettuce celebrate the goodness of Pride month by adding color to our plates with a rainbow of organic fruit skewers!

Celebrating diversity and inclusion

Pride month is a time to celebrate and honor the LGBTQ+ community, and it takes place every June. During the month, there are parades, rallies, and events that bring people together to celebrate diversity, equality, and love.

Talking to kids about Pride month can be a great opportunity to teach them about respect for all people. We share that everyone is not the same, and that's what makes the world a more interesting and beautiful place. Be sure to use age-appropriate language and concepts that your child can understand, and answer any questions they may have honestly and openly. Emphasize that everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and acceptance, regardless of their differences. Encourage your child to ask questions, and to be open to learning more with them about different cultures, beliefs, and lifestyles. By teaching kids about Pride month, we can help to create a more accepting and inclusive world for everyone.

Benefits of rainbow fruit skewers

These produce-powerhouses of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants are a good addition to our diet with many benefits. Fruit provides essential vitamins, helps support healthy growth and development of children, boosts the immune system, and reduces the risk of chronic diseases. For children, eating a variety of fruits can help to establish healthy eating habits and preferences, which can carry over into adulthood. Encouraging children to eat fruits regularly can be as simple as offering a variety of colorful options and incorporating them into meals and snacks throughout the day. And so, we bring you the wonderful togetherness of kitchen goodness with rainbow fruit skewers.

Selecting the ingredients

For this recipe, you'll need a variety of fruits to create our rainbow skewers. Some great options include strawberries (red), oranges (orange) or cantaloupe (orange), pineapple (yellow), kiwi (green), or honeydew (light green), blueberries (blue), and grapes (purple).

Aim to choose organic produce to get the highest quality, nutrient-rich fruits. Organic farming practices also emphasize the use of renewable resources and conservation of soil and water, which is better for the environment. Studies have shown that organic produce is often higher in nutrients and antioxidants compared to conventionally grown produce. Additionally, choosing organic produce can help to reduce exposure to harmful chemicals and pesticides, which can have negative health effects. Opting for organic produce is a great way to support sustainable agriculture, promote health and well-being, and minimize the negative impact of food production on the environment.

The rainbow-health connection

Now that we have our fruits, let's take a closer look at each one and its health benefits.

Strawberries: High in vitamin C and fiber, strawberries are great for promoting healthy digestion and boosting the immune system.

Cantaloupe: This nutrient-rich fruit is high in vitamin C, vitamin A, and potassium, making it great for supporting healthy skin, immune function, and blood pressure.

Kiwi: Loaded with vitamin C, vitamin K, and potassium, kiwi is a great fruit for promoting healthy bones and boosting the immune system.

Assembling the rainbow skewers

Grab a long wooden skewer and start threading your fruits on, alternating between colors to create a rainbow effect. Encourage your kids to get creative with their designs, whether they want to create a repeating pattern or make a unique design of their own. A tip for skewer safety with kids: When skewering the fruit, place the fruit on a cutting board that won’t slip and skewer with a downward motion into the fruit so the end of the skewer is stopped by the board instead of little fingers.
