Find new ways to incorporate fruits and vegetables into your diet. Explore types of fruits and vegetables and their health benefits by participating in the Colors of Summer Veggie and Fruit Challenge, from July 3-30.

This challenge is an honor-based, 28-day program designed to encourage participants to increase their fruit and vegetable intake, which helps to reduce the risk for heart disease and adult onset diabetes, and promotes overall good health.
