August marks the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics annual Kids Eat Right Month™. Created in 2014, this campaign encourages parents and caregivers to help children establish healthful eating habits as summer winds down and kids prepare to head back to school.

Blueberries are a nutritious and delicious part of a healthy diet – and a great suggestion when it comes to promoting healthy eating habits as kids head back to school (and year-round). That’s why the USHBC has created several resources to help families incorporate blueberries into their daily diets.

Check-out our resources and share them with your customers, friends and family to ensure the school year is off to a nutritious start!
