Wright from the Source: Fruits & Veggies

By Bob Wright, H3 Director of Education

Shopping cart with vegetables

If there is one thing we know beyond a shadow of a doubt, it is that fruits and vegetables are good for us. Yet only 23% of us consume the recommended minimum of 5 servings a day.

 

According to a  recent CDC report , fewer than 15% meet the target of getting a variety of different color fruits and vegetable. The evidence is over whelming, a diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables lower the risk of virtually every chronic disease, including obesity.

 

If you are one of the few meeting the guideline congratulations, keep up the  great work. If you are among the 85% that are not, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR.  Start today.
