Pick a better Snack™ & Act BINGO cards: These game cards encourage people to try a variety of fruits and vegetables and physical activities. They feature four seasonally available fruits and vegetables for each month of the year. The BINGO-type card includes three snack ideas for each fruit and vegetable along with serving size information, and tips on selection and storage. The card gives twelve suggestions for seasonally appropriate physical activities that can be done. A "BINGO" is accomplished when the player completes one row of the card, vertically, horizontally or diagonally. The program was developed through a partnership of the Iowa Nutrition Education Network, Iowa Department of Education and Public Health, Iowa State University Extension and the Iowa Dietetic Association.
