Think you can only get the benefits of fruits and vegetables by shopping in the produce aisle? Think again! Fruits and veggies are being added to foods like rice, oatmeal, and snacks in really interesting and yummy ways. As a registered dietitian, I do a little happy dance every time I find food choices that help people eat more produce. Only one in 10 American adults eat enough fruits or vegetables, according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention. Yikes!
For times when fresh produce just isn’t an option, try reaching for any of these innovative, shelf-stable products. They go beyond the old-school diced fruit cocktail to help you meet your fruit and veggie quota for the day. Plus, they’re convenient and delicious!
