All national health organizations recommend eating five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables each day to promote good health and reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. Fruits and veggies contribute to good health because they contain vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber and other essential nutrients. Most are low in fat and calories, are high in fiber, and contain no cholesterol. As an added bonus, choosing fruits and vegetables in place of high-fat foods as part of a healthy diet, may make it easier to control your weight.
