June is fresh fruit and vegetable month. Fruits have important nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. Eat a variety of fruits because they are naturally low in calories, fat, and sodium. Eating fruit as part of a healthy diet can reduce the risk of some diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes. For good health, adults should try to eat 2 cups of fruit a day.
