To date, more than 2,300 elementary schools in 48 states have signed on to participate in P.A.C.K. Week. This educational program, which is being embraced by school nurses nationwide, assigns a specific color group of fruits and vegetables to each day of the week and helps children and their families understand the health benefits of eating fruits and vegetables.

"P.A.C.K. Week is a fun, engaging way to encourage parents and children to consume a range of colorful fruits and vegetables, which matters in maintaining a healthy weight and possibly reducing the risk of many diseases," said Elizabeth Pivonka, Ph.D., R.D., President and CEO of Produce for Better Health Foundation. "And, all forms of fruits and vegetables count, from fresh and frozen, to canned, dried and 100% juice."

The colors for each day of P.A.C.K. Week are:

-- Monday, September
