Call on your creativity.

Keep coming up with new and interesting ways to get those fruits in veggies. You'll be on your way to 5 a day (or more) in no time!

Sweeten with fruit.

Who needs candy or cookies for dessert? Berries,melon, dates and tropical fruits are naturally sweet ways to end your meal.

Prep ahead of time.Wash, slice, and dice as many as you can. Store your prepared produce in clear containers at the front of your fridge.This way you'll see it and can easily reach for quick snacks and meals.

Boost store bought meals.

Most frozen, canned or boxed meals seriously lack fresh ingredients. Add nutrition and health to prepared meals by adding extra veggies to the mix.Heat them together, mix and serve.

Call on comfort foods.

It's easy to make them healthier! Add broccoli to macaroni & cheese, berries to ice cream, and frozen peas to casseroles to help meet your daily quota.

Ditch the energy bars.

Besides being expensive and highly processed, you can get a better boost of energy and nutrition from portable fruits! Try 100% fruit leathers, dried fruit, apples, bananas, grapes and more.

Dine out smart.

Many ethnic dishes are naturally healthy and loaded with veggies.Try Mexican,Indian,Japanese or Thai cuisine, keeping an eye out for vegetable-based meals.

Drink up.

Enjoy a chilled glass of 100% fruit or vegetable juice instead of coffee,tea or soda.One 6-8 oz glass of juice is a delicious way to down a serving of fruit or vegetables!

Chill out.

Frozen fruits and veggies can be more nutritious than "fresh" ones that have sat for a several days. Add them to almost any dish to increase your daily intake!

Enjoy vegetable based soups. Look for canned soups that are loaded with veggies. If your favorite is low on veggies, add fresh tomatoes, spinach, peppers or cabbage.

Have a berry breakfast!

Top your cereal, oatmeal, pancakes or waffles with a handful of fresh berries to start your day with a serving of fruit. Raisins, apricots, and bananas also pair well with these breakfast foods

Start a garden.

People (especially kids) take pride in the produce that they grow themselves, making them
more likely to eat it. Grow a few of your favorites right in your own backyard!

Try the salad bar.

Take advantage of your grocery salad bar,which provides precut varieties of fruit, vegetables, and beans. Eat them as snacks or toss into a salad with less prep time.

Keep them in sight.

Store fruits and vegetables on the top shelf of the fridge,or on the kitchen counter or table in a colorful arrangement. If you see them, you will eat them more often.

Don't toss it.

If produce is about to go bad,freeze it for later use in smoothies, batters,soup, and stir-fry instead of throwing it out.

Eat seasonally.

Fruits and vegetables are cheaper and more nutritious when you buy them in season.They taste better too.

Buy unripe produce too. Bring home both yellow and green bananas,for example.

Eat the ripe stuff now as the rest ripens later in the week. You'll have fresh food without making multiple grocery runs.

Savor a smoothie.

Smoothies,made with any combination of fresh or frozen fruit, low-fat milk or yogurt, ice, and 100% juice are tasty ways to fit more fruit into your day.

Choose canned.

Canned fruits (without syrup) and veggies (with low sodium) are just as nutritious as fresh. plus they're easy on your wallet and your schedule, making cooking a breeze.

Add flair with fruit.

Raisins, apples and tangerine slices add sweetness and texture to salads.Apples complement pork, pineapple is great with fish, and orange slices are perfect with chicken.

Dip it.

Instead of dipping your chips and veggies into creamy dressings, make a healthy dip out veggies--hummus, chunky salsa, guacamole, and roasted red pepper dips will help you meet
your daily quota.
