This site is an excellent resource for science or health teachers who want to impart the necessity of nutritious, well-balanced diets to their students. The "Dole 5-a-Day" site is colorful, graphically pleasing, and extremely easy to navigate for even the youngest web surfers. Users can go to the "Fruit & Vegetable Encyclopedia" and learn about the four major varieties of potatoes, how the mango was introduced to Florida farmers in 1860, and how farmers grow and harvest broccoli. Cartoon characters like Annie and Arthur Asparagus, Courtney Cauliflower, and Kevin Kiwi host each fruit's or vegetable's page.
