Nutrients in Fruits and Vegetables

Fruit and vegetables are low in energy and packed with vitamins, minerals, protective plant compounds and fibre, so they're a great source of nutrients and vital for a healthy diet.Fruit and vegetables should be incorporated into every meal, as well as being the first choice for a snack. Population studies have shown that people who eat a lot of fruit and vegetables may have a lower risk of chronic disease, such as heart disease and cancers. Health benefits can be gained from fresh, natural juice, frozen, cooked, juiced or dried versions. Potatoes don't count because they come under starchy food. Fruit and vegetables also assist weight management as they're low in calories, but their calorific load is determined by what you prepare them with, so avoid butter, cream or cheese sauces, and dips that can accompany them. Some fruit and vegetables are labelled as 'superfoods' because they contain high concentrations of some phytonutrients, particularly antioxidants, which appear to be beneficial to health. Choosing a variety throughout the day will provide a diverse package of essential nutrients. Have a Healthy Life!!!!!!!!!!!!!
