September is Fruits and Veggies Month

September is Fruits and Veggies Month and the U of I Extension Office in Taylorville is out spreading the word.


Lisa Peterson is the Nutrition and Wellness Educator with the Extension Office she wishes every month could be Fruits and Veggies Month, she also knows that too many Americans fall short when it comes to fruits and vegetables.



For some who might think the price tag on fruits and vegetables are too high Peterson recommends buy those that are in season to help reduce costs.



Peterson often hears how much better it is to buy from a farmers market, she admits it does have it benefits but her first concern is how long the product has been on the truck.



Livingston appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
