Eating fruits and vegetables each day is one of the most important choices you can make to help maintain your health.
Studies have shown that eating at least five servings of different fruits and vegetables each day can lower the risk of getting many different types of chronic diseases.
Fresh fruits and vegetables are cholesterol free and extremely low in saturated fat-if they contain any at all!
