Eat the Rainbow!
Eat the Rainbow… We all heard since childhood that fruits and vegetables are an important part in our diet. But, no matter how many times we heard it, fruits and vegetables were not liked by many kids. For many parents, it is a constant battle to convince their little ones to consume adequate portions of fruits and vegetables. But, as youngters, little did we know about the benefits of eating a variety of fruits and vegetables. Eating colorful fruits and vegetables is important for optimal health. Each colour in the fruits and vegetables are caused by phytonutrients and indicate the abundance of specific nutrients. For instance, red fruits and vegetables contain lycopene and ellagic acid. These nutrients are known for their cancer-fighting properties. The orange and yellow fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamin C, carotenoids including beta-carotene and are believed to improve the immune system and promote eye health. The green ones will help detoxify the body, restore vitality and energy.
