Health Tip: Work Fruits and Veggies Into Your Diet

Health Tip: Work Fruits and Veggies Into Your Diet


(HealthDay News) -- It can be a challenge to fit enough fruits and vegetables into your daily diet.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these ideas for using fruits and veggies as snacks:

  • Spread whole wheat pita bread with hummus.
  • Dip baked tortilla chips in black bean and corn salsa.
  • Nibble on dried or fresh fruit, or drink a fruit smoothie.
  • Have some low-fat or nonfat yogurt covered with slices of fresh fruit.
  • Eat a ready-made salad.
  • Dip fresh vegetables in a low-fat or fat-free dressing.
