Eat Your Fruits & Veggies!

In a recent survey, only 14% of Virginians eat the daily recommendation of 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables. People who eat the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables per day have reduced risk of diseases like stroke, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension. With June being National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month, it is the perfect time for you to ask yourself whether you are a healthy eater. If the answer is no, consider making a change to include more fruits and veggies in your daily eating plan.
