On Wednesday, November 5, National Eating Healthy Day, we invited individuals to eat more vegetables and fruit by including a fruit and/or vegetable at every meal and snack with the theme “Produce Results”. Most North Dakotan’s eat less than half the recommended 8-10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
Fruits and vegetables are typically high in vitamins, minerals and fiber, and low in saturated fat and calories. Most fruits and vegetables also have no or little sodium. Eating a variety of fruits and vegetables can help control your weight, blood pressure and cholesterol, lowering your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
We’ve got tips and tools in an easy to use free toolkit to help you incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. Visit www.heart.org/NationalEatingHealthyDay
