World Coconut Day

World Coconut Day is observed on September 2nd to commemorate the formation of the Asian Pacific Coconut Community (APCC). The APCC is headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia and all major coconut growing countries including India are members of APCC. To celebrate coconut’s many contributions to health and culture, APCC began celebrating this day in 2009. Now, that you have a special day to celebrate the nutritious and delicious fruit, add more fun to it.

Celebrate by doing fun activities:

1. Try opening a coconut by yourself.

2. Cook something different with coconut, for example, coconut-based curry, coconut shrimp, coconut-lime rice, or even coconut-crusted onion rings.

3. Drink coconut juice while coloring this handout.
