Nutrition and You - Inspired by color

A spectrum of potent possibilities

The next time you take a trip to the grocery store, stop and look around as you enter the produce department. Chances are you’ll see an array of colors—orange, yellow, green, purple, and more. All that color represents a possible path to better health.

Eating a lot of fruits and vegetables in different colors helps ensure that you get a wide range of valuable nutrients, including fiber, folate, potassium, and vitamins A and C. These nutrients may help protect you from chronic diseases.

Below is your guide to the colors of health.
