The Play with Your Produce Personality Quiz helps Facebook users become better acquainted with themselves by discovering their inner-produce, while simultaneously raising awareness about the importance of eating fresh fruits and vegetables.

The 10-question quiz takes just minutes to complete. The personal and silly questions identify the quiz-taker's character traits and match each personality type with a fruit or vegetable that is most relatable to the user. After completing the quiz, each user is encouraged to join the PFK Facebook Page to meet someone else who matches their personality, fall madly in love and live "apple-ly" ever after -- well what a "peachy keen" thought.

"The goal of the Produce for Kids Facebook quiz is our way of getting people excited about healthy-eating and getting them to reveal something new about themselves to their individual social network," said Heidi McIntyre, executive director of Produce For Kids. "We're not being scientific, but we are serious about raising awareness about the benefits of eating healthy with more fruits and vegetables."

A study conducted by the Perishables Group found that only 18 percent of the parents surveyed said their children eat the recommended three or more servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Produce for Kids seeks to educate parents, teachers and children about how to combat these unhealthy trends. To take the quiz now visit: http://bit.ly/PFKQuiz.
