The Awesome Mary Show: Shop the Rainbow
In this video, Mary shows us how to "Shop the Rainbow” when making healthy choices in the grocery store. Filling your cart with a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables can help remind you to fill your plate with the same. Eating fruits and vegetables in a variety of colors – red, dark green, yellow/orange, blue/purple, and white – will provide more of the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Eating a diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber can help prevent chronic disease, protect against cancer, maintain healthy blood pressure, aide in the formation of red blood cells, keep eyes and skin healthy, promote healthy teeth and gums, and help the body heal faster from sickness or injury.
