WHY EAT LOTS OF FRUIT
AND VEGETABLES?
Eating lots of fruit and vegetables makes you
healthy and helps prevent diseases. Also, they
are low in fat and high in fibre – both good
things. Food like white bread, white rice, white
sugar, cakes and pies should be replaced with
lots of naturally colourful fruit and vegetables.
Cooking vegetables is easy and, if you grow
them yourself, they will taste better.
Try to eat as many colourful fruit and
vegetables as you can everyday.
Eating vegetables will:
Give you more energy
Help stop diseases like diabetes, heart
disease, ear, eye, skin & tooth diseases
Make your bones strong
Build your immune system so you can fight
infections, like colds
Help you think better
Help you play sport better
Help you stay slim
