Oct. 5, 2009 - PRLog -- “We were surprised to discover how many children did not eat any fruit during the course of a day,” Neeraj Mehra, MD, Little Silver Medicine, says. “Our campaign emphasizes that fruit tastes great and offers a multitude of health boosting benefits, particularly for growing children.”

During the month of October, Little Silver Medicine is sponsoring a Fruit-a-Day drawing for children who eat from one to five pieces of fruit for seven consecutive days. Children document their fruit consumption on an official FAD entry form, obtain a parent’s signature and submit it to Little Silver Medicine no later than 5 p.m. on October 30. Winners will be chosen randomly from all eligible entries on October 31. Prizes include a Nintendo DSi and gift cards to Toys”R”Us and Barnes & Noble.

Little Silver Medicine is a sponsor of the 2009 Little Silver Classic 5K and Kids’ Races on October 11. FAD entry forms may be obtained during the event or by calling Little Silver Medicine at 732-HEALTH1 or 732-741-5600.
