Weight Loss Tip: Are you wanting a nutritious treat that your children would love to eat? Try making caterpillar kabobs. Cut fruits such as fresh pineapple, oranges, melon, apples, and strawberries into bite-sized chunks. Assemble the chunks of the colorful fruit on a skewer to form a fruity, caterpillar kabob. Since the fruit is on a skewer, monitor young children when they are eating this treat.
The price look-up (PLU) code system used by most produce distributors has the side benefit of allowing consumers to identify conventional and organic produce at the grocery store. Even though the defeat of Proposition 37 means that genetically engineered information will not be added to labels at this time, PLU codes do have the potential to identify genetically engineered produce. This video shows you how to read PLU codes to unlock the information that is already right at your fingertips. Written and Produced by Mike Kahn.
