Be sure to eat fruits and vegetables at every meal to keep our bodies healthy. Fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which protect us against diseases. They also help us prevent obesity.
Help your kids develop a lifetime of healthy habits by serving a great variety of fruits and veggies. Eat a rainbow of colors! Keep in mind that different colors mean different nutrients.
Remember, MyPlate tells us to fill half of our plate with fruits and vegetables.
Fruits and vegetables are found in many forms — fresh, frozen, canned and dried. Fill your fridge, freezer and pantry with a variety of them.
