Colour It Up...Go for More Vegetables and Fruit is an exciting proven provincial program that helps women and their families learn to eat the number of servings of vegetables and fruit recommended by Canada's Food Guide.
Eating a variety of vegetables and fruit every day can make us healthier. It makes us less likely to develop certain types of cancer, heart disease, stroke, obesity and other diseases.
The Vegetables and Fruit food group is the most prominent arc in the rainbow on Canada's Food Guide. The number of Food Guide Servings recommended each day is higher than any other food group. Women ages 19-50 should try to eat 7 to 8 Food Guide Servings of vegetables and fruit each day and women over the age of 50 should try to eat 7 Food Guide Servings of vegetables and fruit each day.
