A new year is a great time to start good new habits. And you are never too young to do things that will help your health and well-being.
So do you like fruits and vegetables? Do you like fruits better than vegetables, or the other way around? You have probably heard how important it is to eat these daily, but do you know why? Let’s take a look!
Fruits and vegetables contain vitamins and minerals that protect against disease, keep you healthy, and helping to avoid the need of taking bad-tasting medicine (unless you absolutely have to). Eat more fruits and veggies—they taste much better than a spoonful of bitter cough syrup!
Would you like to grow more to you best height and weight? Fruits and vegetables contain important vitamins and minerals that help your body grow to its maximum potential. Give your bodies a fighting chance to be the best they can be.
You can also prevent grown-up illnesses. Strong scientific evidence says that regularly eating fruits and vegetables when you are young can help you avoid some major problems when you get older.
Fruits and vegetables contain a lot of natural fiber that is really good for your digestive system (your tummy and intestines), and they will work a lot better if you eat these foods.
Eat the colors of the rainbow. Did you know that all the different fruits and vegetables come in different colors? That’s no accident! God created them that way, as each one contains different vitamins and minerals that are good for you. So to get the best effect, try to eat as many colors of them as you can!
Note: Some of you may be allergic to some fruits and vegetables. If you are, it’s important to avoid those particular ones. But try to eat others for their great benefits!
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31, NIV)
Fun With Your Food!
This is a great way to make fruits and vegetables fun to eat. Check with your parents about whether you can use certain ingredients (just in case they need them for something else). Have them help you with some of the chopping as well.
