For health and well-being
From a nutritional perspective, it is recommended that we eat two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetables each day. Fruits and vegies are filled with vitamins, minerals and fibre and having an adequate intake of them in our diet can protect us against serious diseases and conditions.
When striving for this healthy diet, it is important to have a variety of fruit and vegetables, in both raw and cooked forms. Different types, as well as different colours, contain a variety of nutrients, known as phytochemicals that provide essential health benefits. One easy way to achieve the five vegetable servings in your diet is to eat every colour of vegetables every day, and the best source is fresh from your own backyard.
