Does color matter? What we eat.

While the concept of including colorful foods in your diet seems easy enough, most Americans don't eat nearly the amount of fruit and vegetables they require for good health. So, which colors offer what benefits? Let us paint a picture for you:


Green produce indicates antioxidant potential and may help promote healthy vision and reduce cancer risks.
Orange and deep yellow fruits and vegetables contain nutrients that promote healthy vision and immunity and reduce the risk of some cancers.

Purple and blue options may have antioxidant and anti-aging benefits and may help with memory, urinary tract health and reduced cancer risks.
Red indicates produce that may help maintain a healthy heart, vision, immunity and may reduce cancer risks.

White, tan and brown foods frequently contain nutrients that may promote heart health and reduce cancer risks.
