Vegetables and Fruit

Good nutrition is fundamental to normal growth and development.  According to Canada’s Food Guide, healthy eating helps people:

  • Get enough vitamins, minerals and other nutrients
  • Reduce their risk of chronic disease
  • Achieve overall health and vitality

The vegetables and fruit food group  is the most prominent arch of the rainbow on Canada’s Food Guide, emphasizing the important role these foods play in a healthy eating pattern.

A healthy diet rich in vegetables and fruit may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some types of cancer.
Did you know that canned and frozen vegetables and fruit have the same nutritional value as fresh vegetables and fruit? We invite you to check our Veggies & Fruit campaign to learn more!
