Fruits & Veggies More Matters

We can help you eat more fruits & vegetables! Fruits & Veggies–More Matters® is a health initiative focused on helping Americans increase fruit & vegetable consumption for better health.  The program is spearheaded by Produce for Better Health Foundation (PBH), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) to help spread the word about the health benefits of adding MORE fruits & veggies to your diet.

 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Health and Human Services’ Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010 recommends that Americans make half their plate fruits and vegetables for meals and snacks, as demonstrated by the MyPlate nutrition guide. Given the increase of chronic diseases among all age groups, eating a diet rich in a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables is more important than ever. Fruits & Veggies—More Matters is here to make the healthy choice also an easy choice.
