Color Me Blue

Recent studies indicate that Americans of all ages are failing to get their daily recommended servings of fruits and veggies -- despite the fact that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can help maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease and some cancers (State Indicator Report on Fruits and Vegetables, 2009). Frozen produce, including antioxidant-rich wild blueberries, is a nutritious solution for families looking to make healthy eating more convenient and affordable. Just half a cup of frozen wild blueberries satisfies one fruit serving and is a good source of dietary fiber. The FDA has concluded that frozen produce is just as nutritious as fresh and may even retain its nutritional value longer -- all of which makes frozen an excellent value for consumers wanting to increase their intake while making the most of their food dollar.
