“Eat the rainbow” – or rather, eat a variety of colourful fruits and vegetables – is a fundamental healthy eating tip. Each colour in fruits and vegetables is created by specific phytonutrients, which are natural compounds that help protect plants from germs, bugs, the sun, and other threats. And each colour indicates an abundance of specific nutrients.
In fact, the variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals in fruits and vegetables may be more powerful for your health than any pill.
Eating a diversity of colourful foods can be an easy way to get the complete range of nutrients your body needs to thrive.
