People who eat a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables can help lower their risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer. Eating healthy can also help prevent obesity and high blood pressure.

However, many people don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables.

  • Only 1 in 3 adults eat the recommended amount of fruits every day.
  • Only 1 in 4 adults eat the recommended amount of vegetables every day.

Making small changes, like keeping fresh fruit or carrot sticks within easy reach can help you and your family be at their best.
