5 Colors. 5 Cups. Every Day.
Ever notice how colorful the produce section of your supermarket is? This beauty is more than just skin deep.

It’s the stuff your body needs for better health and to reduce your risk of chronic disease. And the way to get it all is to eat all your colors: about 2 cups of fruit, and 3 cups of vegetables. That’s 5 colorful cups every day. Your body will thank you.
