Tips for Healthier Eating
Did you know that about 9 out of 10 of high school students don't eat enough fruits and vegetables? This is why HealthCorps is empowering high school students to take charge of their health and eat more nutritious foods. Take a step into the HealthCorps classroom and get a taste of what students are learning about the importance of common fruits and vegetables:
1) Sweet Potatoes - This root vegetable is a member of the morning glory family and provides a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and fiber.
2) Tomatoes - The bright red color comes from lycopene, a phytonutrient that is best absorbed by the body when a tomato is cooked or crushed.
3) Edamame - Calcium comes from more than milk! Edamame is a plant-based source of calcium to help support bone health.
