A is for Avocados!


It’s always a good time to learn about nutrition and instill healthy habits into your family’s eating routine!  Our friends from Sesame Street are here with a special message regarding avocados!

Elmo, Cookie Monster and Rosita help from Chef Pati Jinich, of WETA’s Pati’s Mexican Table on PBS Stations, share health benefits and fun facts about the avocado. From tickling Elmo’s taste buds with avocado toast to satisfying Cookie Monster’s cookie obsession with easy avo-substitutions, these educational videos show the green superfruit for what it is…versatile and ready for any diet!

Did you know…?
