At Least Five a Day!

For our bodies to grow and stay healthy, we need certain types of nutrients from our food. Nutrients are vitamins and other healthy things like calcium and fiber that can be found in foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Nutrients help our bodies grow strong and keep us from getting sick. Whenever we eat a diet that contains many fresh foods like fruits and vegetables, we can be sure we’re getting the nutrients we need! As a matter of fact, doctors recommend that we get at least five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables a day. One serving is about half an apple or peach, half a cup of berries, a small salad, or a handful of carrot sticks. Make a list of your favorite fruits and vegetables and try to eat them daily!
