Most people know that eating fruits and vegetables is important for good health, but most of us still aren’t getting enough. This September, The Ho-Chunk Nation Department of Health is proud to participate in Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month.

Eating a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and fruits can help you:

  • Lower your risk for heart disease and some types of cancer
  • Maintain or reach a healthy weight
  • Keep your body strong and active

Here are some ideas to help you and your family fit more fruits and vegetables into your day:

  • Keep a bowl of fruit handy where the whole family can see it.
  • Cut up fruits and veggies ahead of time so they're ready for quick, healthy snacks.
  • Challenge your family to try a new veggie or fruit every week.
