another use for laundry baskets

Like every mom, I am constantly worried that my kiddos are not getting enough fruit and veggies. Gavin is pretty good, he hates french fries {seriously} but the other two fall into the " a fry is a vegetable right?" column. Here is my solution. Bountiful Baskets.

A produce co-op; you pay a $15 "contribution" on Monday and pick up your produce Saturday morning. You get plenty and each week it is different so my kids get to try things that I wouldn't normally buy.

Last week we received- green beans, asparagus, cauliflower, tomatoes, garlic, lettuce, apples, strawberries, blackberries, pineapple, and cantaloupe.

Just a note we to the co-op every other week, our family of 5 can't get through all the fruit and veggies in a week. But I did talk to a mother of 7 and she buys two baskets a week. Hopefully that will help you gauge how much you need. If you have any questions leave a comment.
