Do you like to eat fruits? What’s your favorite one?
How often do you eat fresh fruit? What about vegetables? Do you have a favourite one?
OK, no one wants to go on a meat-free diet discussion here, but did you know fruits and vegetables are very important for your diet?
Because of their nutritional and health benefits, it’s recommended that fruit and vegetables form the basis of your diet, with a minimum intake of five portions each day – about a third of your daily food consumption.
Fruit and vegetables should be incorporated into every meal, as well as being the first choice for a snack. Population studies have shown that people who eat a lot of fruit and vegetables may have a lower risk of chronic disease, such as heart disease and some cancers. Health benefits can be gained from fresh, canned (in natural juice), frozen, cooked, juiced or dried versions. Potatoes don’t count though. Sorry!
