All we know is that we should include at least six servings of fruits and vegetables each in our daily foods plan! But most of the people don’t follow and they doing are two different things. Aren’t they? Sometimes is not easy to get them all in there. Most of the time, we continuously include some convenience and junk foods in our daily food style. Some people doing in another way like they would fill up on a bag of chips or bowl of rice or pasta instead of using an apple or veggies. So we should exit from this unhealthy food plan. So that here we are showing some ideas to ‘ADD’ some extra vegetables and fruits in your family diet. That will give a healthy body to you and your loved ones!
