Most people know that eating fruits and vegetables is important for good health, but most of us still aren’t getting enough. 

Eating a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and fruits can help you:

  • Lower your risk for heart disease and some types of cancer

  • Maintain or reach a healthy weight

  • Keep your body strong and active

Here are some ideas to help you and your family fit more fruits and vegetables into your day:

  • Keep a bowl of fruit handy where the whole family can see it.

  • Cut up fruits and veggies ahead of time so they’re ready for quick, healthy snacks.

  • Challenge your family to try a new veggie or fruit every week.

Remember, eating more fruits and veggies can be fun – and it’s worth it!
