Friday Nutrition Tip

Vary Your Veggies!

When you eat different colored vegetables you are including different vitamins, minerals and antioxidants into your diet.

Be sure to include dark, leafy green vegetables, orange, purple and white vegetables. You don’t have to eat every color, every day but it’s important to aim for the different colors on a weekly basis.
