Fruit Salad, Yummy Yummy...
Any other adults jamming to the fruit salad song? Or is it just me?
The wiggles may be cheesy, but they knew what they were talking about - fruit salad is both yummy AND healthy!

Fun tip: Ahh summer - when produce tastes fresh and most delicious! Itโ€™s hard to say no to more juicy berries or plump tomatoes! Summer is a great time to focus on eating the colour of the rainbow. Why do we want to do this? Well, different colours of fruit & veggies (and really any plant food) contain different types of โ€˜phytonutrientsโ€™. These are the tiny compounds in food that produce the colour and provide protection to the plant. When you eat the plant, you also get the protective compounds that promote health and prevent disease. An example would be carotenoids, which work against harmful molecules in your body and support your immune system to function better. Instead of considering which plant provides you with which phytonutrient, focus on eating a wide variety of fresh foods, ideally, all the colours, like eating a rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ
