Struggle to get your kids to enjoy leafy greens?

Introduce them to Romaine Lettuce, the April Harvest of the Month.

Romaine is mild and nearly flavorless–perfect for those pickier eaters–but it’s packed full of important vitamins that parents love.

One great way to incorporate romaine is to substitute it for tortillas or wraps, like in this delicious recipe for Romaine Lettuce Tacos.
