do you buy fresh fruits and vegetables because you think you should but then end up throwing them away because no one eats them?

  • I buy them and greet them daily as I see them decomposing. I try but when you have a Hot Pocket in the freezer and an orange on the table, which would you choose?

  • That used to happen to me a lot, but now I'm on a strict diet and so I eat a lot of fruits and veggies and for some reason the more I keep around now the more the kids want them. It's great, but a bit strange too...they never liked them before. : )

  • I got those green bag things and they work. I actually put 3 carrots in a bag and left 3 in a crisper drawer and the bags worked. I have the opposite problem...Monday I bought 30 apples and got ready to pack my lunch before work wednesday and they were gone. UGH! There is never any fruit when I need it. Even with veggies, but they don't eat those until I cook them.

  • Fruits don't last long at my house. I always make sure they are where the kids can see them- on the bar in a fruit bowl. That way my kids can grab and go. But when I WANT one there's never any left.
