According to the American Dietetic Association, fruita and vegetables which are orange and yellow contain nutrients that promote healthy vision and immunity. They also reduce the risks of some cancers.

Fruits to try this week:
Apricots, oranges, cantaloupe, grapefruit, mango. papaya and pineapple

Veggies to try this week:
Carrots, yellow pepper, yellow corn and sweet potatoes

We challenge you to eat one of the orange or yellow foods above EACH day this week!

P.S. I don’t have any pretty pictures this week, sorry. However, at our house we enjoyed mangoes, oranges, carrots and little orange tomatoes.
