Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Eat Your Vegetables Day

June 17th is National Eat All Vegetables Day — part of National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month.

Eat All Vegetables Day is meant to encourage people to eat more vegetables, try an unfamiliar veggie or re-introduce a long-lost favorite. 

Evidence shows there are significant health benefits to getting at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day. That's 5 portions of fruit and veg in total, not 5 portions of each. A portion of fruit or vegetables is 80g.

5 reasons for eating 5 a day

  1. Fruit and vegetables are a good source of vitamins and minerals, including folate, vitamin C and potassium.
  2. They're an excellent source of dietary fibre, which can help to maintain a healthy gut and prevent constipation and other digestion problems. A diet high in fibre can also reduce your risk of bowel cancer.
  3. They can help to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke and some types of cancer.
  4. Fruit and vegetables contribute to a healthy, balanced diet.
  5. Fruit and vegetables taste delicious and there's so much variety to choose from.
