7Fruit and Vegetables
We have our first tastes of fruit and vegetables as purees when we are weaned. We have used to grabbing a banana as a quick and nutritious snack to keep us going during exercise or just because we have peckish.
With so many glorious, colorful varieties and differing flavors, textures, and nutrients, these fabulous plant foods play a huge role in a healthy lifestyle. They provide masses of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, as well as carbohydrates and fiber.
We should all eat at least five portions a day, so that fruit and vegetables make up a third of of our daily food.
