Get to Know Your Veggies

Vegetables may be raw or cooked; fresh, frozen, or canned; and may be whole, cut-up, or mashed.  Based on their nutrient content, vegetables are organized into five subgroups: dark green; red and orange; beans, peas, and lentils; starchy; and other vegetables.

To enjoy the healthful benefits of vegetables, you should vary your veggies often. Try to make your plates very colorful. Remember to make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
