Fruit and Vegetable tips:
🔺Fruit juices and juice concentrates are high in sugar. We recommend replacing those with water and choosing whole fruits or cut up vegetables. Alternatively, add fruit to the water and blend for a delicious smoothie.
🔺Although fresh fruits and vegetables are always best, they are not the only option. Frozen and canned fruits and vegetables can all be healthy options that are convenient and take little time to prepare.
🔺Choose frozen fruits and vegetables without unhealthy additives such as: -added sugars -added sodium
🔺Always keep cut up fruit and vegetables in the refrigerator for easy snacking access
🔺Add fruits to yogurt for a delicious snack
🔺Freeze seedless grapes on a tray and enjoy them as a snack.
