Fruits and Vegetables PDF Print E-mail

Whether fresh, frozen or canned, fruits and vegetables are an essential part of a healthy diet.  Fruits and vegetables are high in vitamins, minerals, fiber and other compounds that help protect the body against disease.    It is recommended that people eat 5-9 cups of fruits and vegetables each day.  Getting fruits and vegetables from a variety of colors including plenty of green leafy vegetables and dark orange vegetables is recommended.

Tips for getting more fruits and vegetables:

Dice onion, celery and peppers and add to pre-made spaghetti sauce or sloppy joes

Add fresh fruit to low-fat yogurt

Add fresh or dried fruit to cereal or oatmeal

Sauté spinach, tomatoes and onion and serve with scrambled eggs

Add an extra can of mixed vegetables or package of frozen vegetables to canned soups

Serve canned pears, peaches or pineapple with cottage cheese for a healthy dessert or snack


Farmers markets provide a great opportunity to buy fresh and local produce from farmers who live in the community.  For more information about the farmers markets in Sioux City visit
