Kids Can - Tomatoes!

Tomato Food Hero Monthly

When kids help make healthy food, they are more likely to try it. Show kids how to:

  • wash tomatoes by rubbing.
  • spread cheese mixture on bread.
  • open cans safely to avoid sharp lid edges.

  • Keep ripe whole tomatoes at room temperature in a single layer in an open container; avoid direct sunlight. Try to use within 5 days. Short refridgerator storage (3 days) can help delay softening but may also reduce flavor.

    • Tomatoes are in season between July and September, so they taste great and cost less.
    • Look for tomatoes that are bright in color and have no darkened areas or bruises under the skin. They should feel firm (not soft), but give slightly when you press on them.
