What’s on your plate? We’re looking for students who make half their meal fruits and veggies in our new campaign. Just take a photo of your meal and upload it to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, using the hashtag #psuplate.
We’ll scour the interwebs every day for entries, and once a week, we’ll randomly draw a winner! Feel free to post as many times as you like. We’ll be choosing a winner every Friday from Sept. 20, 2013 until Oct. 11, 2014.
If we pick you, we’ll send you a short notification back to verify that you’re a Penn State student and invite you to email us to schedule a time to pick up your prize.
So why are we doing this? In a recent study, Penn State students were shown to be consuming less than the daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables.
So how can you increase your intake?
- Add a side salad to your meal
- Fill your plate with half vegetables before adding any other food
- Grab a piece of fruit on your way out of the dining commons
How are you getting your recommended daily amount of fruits and vegetables? Do you have a great recipe or tip you’d like to share? Leave it below!
