Eat a rainbow of color for health

Nutrition experts agree: A healthy body should get a variety of at least five fruits and vegetables per day for more optimal health. Fruits and veggies are great sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals (aptly pronounced “fight-ochemicals”).

These are substances that naturally occur in plants, and some of them may yield health benefits beyond anything your body can absorb from a multivitamin.
It’s important to eat fruits and vegetables of many different colors, since each color group carries unique nutrients. If you eat at least one cup from each color group, you’re on your way to getting your five servings per day. So go ahead and eat the rainbow!
