Eating the right amount of fruits and vegetables as part of a lowfat, high fiber diet may lower your risk of serious problems like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer.
The amount of fruits and vegetables that is right for you depends on your age, gender, and physical activity level. Don’t forget to be active, too! Being physically active gives you more energy. It helps lower stress. And, it helps you keep a healthy body weight. To take care of your health and lower the risk of serious health problems, you need at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity every day (like dancing, walking, or doing yard work). Children need at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
