Fruit and Veggies' Month

During this National Nutrition Month of eating right with color, don't forget to include various fruit and vegetables more abundantly in your dietary habits.

Most fruits and vegetables are naturally low in sodium, low in fat, free from cholesterol, high in fiber, important sources of vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, potassium and folate, increase your fullness factor and are an integral part in any healthy and or weight loss diet program.

Recommendations differ between one person and another, by age, height, weight, gender and physical activity.
However, in general, daily recommendations are:
>> 2-3 servings of fruit per day
>> 3-4 servings of vegetables per day

 (but what counts as serving?? This will follow next week)

& 30 mL of water per kilogram of your weight! Water is essential; especially when you gradually start to increase your fiber intake.
