Day" is a national health programme in the USA and also in the UK to explain why you
need vegetable nutrition as well as fruit and to encourage you to eat more servings of
fruit and vegetables every day. People all over the world are becoming more and
more aware of how important fruit nutrition and vegetable nutrition is to stay healthy.

In general, yellow and dark green vegetables are excellent sources of vitamin A. Green
leafy vegetables are rich in calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin C and many of the B
vitamins. The greener the leaf, the richer the nutrients will be. Here are some
suggestions to think about color to pack nutritional power in your diet: · White: Eat
cauliflower more often than potatoes, onions and mushrooms.· Green: Add more
dark lettuces, such as romaine and red leaf lettuce, spinach, broccoli and Brussels
sprouts to replace iceberg lettuce and green beans. · Yellow-orange: Substitute more
carrots, winter squashes, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, oranges and grapefruit for corn
or bananas. · Red: Select tomatoes, red peppers and strawberries in favor of apples.
If you are trying to watch your weight, an idea is to make sure you are not eating too
many calories if you are adding these foods to your diet. increasing the amounts of
fruits and vegetables you eat can promote weight control, but only if they replace
higher fat foods like ice cream, meat and chips to help you consume fewer calories.
But if fruits and vegetables are simply added to what you already eat, total calories
won't significantly drop and weight loss should not be expected. The most important
thing to do is to vary the fruit and vegetables that you eat from day to day. This is to
give your body a variety but to also keep you interested in your food. There are
always great new recipes, ideas and ways to make your food look and taste great!
