The Time is ripe

Parents know they have a major role to play when it comes to their child’s nutrition, especially by making healthy food choices and providing those same kinds of foods for their kids.  Plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins are the goal.  The key is to find great-tasting foods that are healthy, too.  The good news is that many foods, including fresh grapes, offer both of those qualities.  One thing is for sure:   Kids love grapes and that is good news for everyone’s health and well-being.  They’re also easy to prepare or add to many dishes.  What a plus!

Californians have been cultivating grapes for more than two centuries. Today, 99 percent of U.S. table grapes are produced in California's warm, dry climate that is ideal for grape growing. With 90 grape varieties grown, California grapes come in three colors—green, red, and black—and are in season from May through January.
