June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month


Add more color, texture and healthful living to your everyday by eating more fruits and vegetables.  Fruits and vegetables are great sources of many vitamins, minerals and other natural substances that may help protect you from chronic diseases. To get a healthy variety, think vibrant color!

Eating fruits and vegetables of different colors gives your body a wide range of valuable nutrients, like fiber, folate, potassium, and vitamins A and C. Some examples include green spinach, orange sweet potatoes, black beans, yellow corn, purple plums, red watermelon, and white onions.

You can also sign-up for a CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) and buy your fresh fruits and vegetables directly from local farms.  Click here for more info!
