Focus on Fruits: Tips to help you eat more fruits

Try some of these things to get more fruit:

Keep a bowl of whole fruit on the table, counter, or in the refrigerator. Between meals you can snack on fruits. It is also a great idea to snack on dried fruits. They are easy to carry and store well. People who eat more vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases. Most fruits are naturally low in fat, sodium, and calories. None have cholesterol. Any fruit or 100% fruit juice counts as a part of the Fruit Group.
