         Fruits are nature's colorful creation. Their varied shapes, sizes, aromas, colors, textures, and flavors add to the attractiveness and appeal of food.
         Like fruits, vegetables also provide color and variety to meals. They contain significant sources of essential nutrients-vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals necessary for preventing diseases, prolonging life, and promoting health.
         Fruits and vegetables are not only cancer fighters; they also provide healthful benefits against cardiovascular  diseases, diabetes, stroke, obesity, diverticulosis, micronutrient deficiences, cataracts and birth defects.
         Many people, however, regard fruits as accessory food items which one can life without. Vegetables, on the other hand, are considered as side dishes and not a major focus of meals.
         Take advantage of the healthy benefits of fruits and vegetables. Take the fruit and vegetable challenge.
