A new website encourages kids to include healthy pears as part of their daily diet.

(NAPSI)—There’s good news for parents who want their children to eat more fruit. A fun new website has been created by the growers of USA Pears to engage and educate children about pears.

The site—Pear World—is an online destination for elementary school−age children. Located under the “Kids & Classroom” section of, the site brings a pear orchard to life, encouraging families to include pears as they strive to make half their plate fruits and vegetables as recommended by the USDA’s MyPlate initiative.

The site features the “Pear Buddies,” a friendly and physically active crew of different varieties of pears, each with their own color, shape and personality. There’s even an interactive “Living Orchard” that changes with the seasons.

While at the site, children are encouraged to visit:

• The Pear Orchard, where kids will learn about the 10 different varieties of USA Pears, where they are grown, and how they get from the orchard to the grocer

• The Pear Kitchen, which is full of kid-friendly pear recipes, kitchen safety tips and an introduction to cooking tools and utensils

• The Pear Lab—With arts and crafts, hands-on educational “experiments,” and fun games, this section is sure to be popular with kids and parents alike.

Explore Pear World at Visit USA Pears on Facebook and follow @USAPears on Twitter for recipes, tips and more.
