“Eat Right with Color,” encourages you to incorporate a more colorful array of vegetables and fruits into your diet. So get creative! Go for dark green, yellow, orange, red, blue and purple varieties! Choosing an assortment of colors will provide you with a broad range of nutrients to keep your body working properly. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends 2½ cups of a variety of vegetables and 2 cups of fruit each day—so get started and paint your plate with a rainbow of veggies and fruits!
