We all know that fruit and vegetables contain all the goodness our bodies need to stay healthy, but making sure we fit them into our diet can be a challenge. Especially if we are all still making our way through those Easter eggs!While it’s good to let yourself have a treat now and again, we should all be mindful to create and maintain a healthy eating pattern that will benefit both your mind and body.
Studies have shown that eating a variety of fruit and vegetables helps boost your immune system, fills you with fibre and are rich in vitamins and minerals. All contributing to a healthier body, more glowing skin and improved brain function and who doesn’t want that!
