Schools for Health: Food Fact of the Week

Food Fact of the Week

Fruit And Vegetables are great for Health. They’re a terrific source of all 3 substances your body needs to work well and grow.


1. Vitamins

2. Minerals

3. Fibre


Our bodies can’t make vitamins or fibre. And we can’t absorb minerals direct from rocks but fortunately for us plants can! That’s why we need to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables because they contain loads of vitamins, fibre and minerals. The best way of making sure that we get enough is to eat at least 5 portions of different fruits and vegetables every day.
