Fruits and vegetables are a very important part of eating well, and fueling your body! They are full of fibre, which is very important for digestion, helps us to feel full for longer, can improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels, and can assist in preventing some diseases. They also contain all sorts of essential vitamins and minerals. It’s important to eat all different colours of fruit and vegetables because different colours provide our bodies with different nutrients. 

Fruits and veggies are a great on the go snack and are very easy to pack – making them perfect for travelling, and for a busy schedule. Try grabbing pepper slices, berries, carrot sticks, or a banana when leaving the house. To change things up, you can try dipping your vegetables in hummus or tzatziki or freezing berries or grapes.
