Why should you eat more fruits and vegetables? Why NOT? Veggies and fruits add color, appeal and texture to your meals, and a full serving of fruit will complement your fruit nutrition for the day. Fruits and vegetables are nutritious regardless of how you eat them – juice, dried, canned, frozen and fresh. So they’re convenient to add to any meal or snack.

Vegetables and fruits provide fiber, which will help keep your digestive system working at its peak efficiency. They are also low in calories, naturally. They may reduce your risk of disease – eat plenty of veggies and fruit, and they can help you avoid some types of cancer, as well as high blood pressure and heart disease.

Fruits and veggies are full of minerals and vitamins that help your body feel energized and healthy.

Vegetables and fruits’ variety is almost never-ending! There are new hybrid fruits developed quite frequently, so there are always new things to try.

Fruits and veggies are a very quick snack – just grab, peel and eat.

Nature’s treats are much better for you than most man-made treats, with no added sugars.

Finally, veggies and fruits are fun to eat! Some may squirt and some may crunch, some can be peeled and some can’t. And some can be grown in your own back yard!

Vegetable and fruit nutrition, combined with their great taste and variety make them mother nature’s best convenience food. Fruits and veggies provide the unrivaled combination of great taste, nutrition, abundant variety and multiple product forms – nature’s perfect convenience food!

Technically not a vegetable or a fruit, nuts are also good for your body. Many varieties of nuts are easy to make snacks from, and they’re healthier than sugar-sweetened snacks.
