Health and Nutrition Go Hand-in-Hand

Make half of your plate fruits and vegetables and be active every day.  drink water instead of sugary drinks.  (Sugary drinks are the largest single source of added sugar in the American diet.) doing these things may lower the risk of serious health problems like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer.






Healthy Serving Ideas

Add sliced grapes to pita sandwiches, chicken salads, and pasta.

Rinse and freeze grapes for a quick snack.

Carry raisins with you for a ready, on-the-go snack.

Drink 100% fruit and vegetable juices instead of sugary drinks.

Frozen, canned, and dried fruits and vegetables are just as nutritious as fresh.  Keep a variety in your kitchen for more meal options.
