Fruits and Veggies Matter

September 14, 2010

Recently I was thinking that maybe I would highlight particular fruits and veg on my blog, offering nutritional information and maybe preparation suggestions.

It turns out that this has been done, and well, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The site is called “Fruits and Veggies Matter” and it includes:

  • Benefits of Fruit/Veg
  • A fruit/veg of the month with detailed profile (and archives of past features)
  • Recipes
  • Interactive Tools
  • Q&A
  • Serving information

I’m on the CDC website A LOT looking at epidemiology demographics and I had no idea this existed.

I’m a sucker for simple visuals of health advice so I really liked this graphic for serving sizes:

This is a really great resource if you are looking for new fruits and veg to add to your diet.

    This all looks so scrumptious… and small I sure do love my sweet per-ta-ters!
