75 Delicious Fruit and Vegetable Recipes to Help You Eat a Rainbow

My husband calls fruit and vegetables "little packets of goodness". It is easy to see why.

Fruit and vegetables are full of fibre, minerals, vitamins and phyto nutrients.

They keep us healthy. They protect us from many diseases, including constipation and cancers.

They are versatile and tasty!

Eat More Fruit and Vegetables

At least half of what we eat should be fruit and vegetables. Another way of looking at it is that for every 2 mouthfuls we take, one should be either fruit or vegetables.

Most people don't eat enough fruit and vegetables and they don't even realise.

Eat More Vegetables than Fruit

You want to eat more vegetables than fruit. 

Most kids aren't keen on vegetables. If you have a "vegetable resistant" child, don't worry. Fruit is a good stepping stone to vegetables. Keep presenting them with vegetables, don't pressure them to eat. Most kids will end up eating vegetables.
