Just Add Color

eat rightThe Benefit of Colors
Adapted from:

Since March is National Nutrition Month, the San Antonio Food Bank, along with the Mayor’s Fitness Council is hosting our first Nutrition Summit on March 18th.  Based on data released by the San Antonio Metro Health District, the two core nutrition messages we will focus on are to:

• Increase the intake of vegetables and fruit to at least 3 ½ servings per day
• Make water the drink of choice with a minimum of eight 8oz servings per day

In regards to the message of eating more fruits and vegetables, it goes beyond the recommendation to “just eat more”. We all know we should aim to eat more fruits and veggies, but have you ever wondered why and how they actually help to keep our bodies healthy?

While there are various factors including the fact that they’re high in a number of vitamins, minerals and fiber, a lot of their beneficial properties actually come from their unique color!
Take a look at the following information and see for yourself why Eating the Colors of the Rainbow can help you to live a healthful life!
