Chef James and the Food Reference Website strongly endorse the 5 A Day program, not only for better health, but for it emphasis on fresh, palate pleasing food! Fruits and vegetables are highly nutritious, especially fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice, fresh vegetables, fresh vegetable soups, fresh salads, etc. They taste good, they are good for you, they are easy and quick to prepare, they look good, they smell good - Holy Moly Rocky - FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES ARE THE PERFECT ‘FAST FOOD’!!! And when you are not able to have fresh, then have frozen, canned or dried fruits and vegetables. They are almost as easy to prepare, and contain similar nutrient contents as fresh. Many dried fruits have even higher nutrient content because they have been concentrated in a smaller ‘package’.

The 5 A Day for Better Health Program is a large-scale public/private partnership between the fruit and vegetable industry and the U. S. Government. This national nutrition program seeks to increase the number of daily servings Americans eat of fruits and vegetables to five or more. Along with this main goal, the program works to inform Americans that eating fruits and vegetables can improve their health and may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. The program provides consumers with easy ways to add more fruits and vegetables into their daily eating patterns.
