It shares suggestions for adding more fruits and vegetables into your day:

  • Add bananas or berries to cereal for extra flavour.
  • Add mushrooms, onions, or peppers to a breakfast omelette.
  • Put vegetables such as cucumber, tomato, or avocado on a sandwich and apple chunks, grapes, or raisins in tuna or chicken salad.
  • Keep raw veggie sticks such as bell peppers, celery, and carrots in the fridge for easy snacks.
