Welcome back to National Nutrition Month® 2015 Q&A! Check to see if you got the correct answer to yesterday’s question.
True or False: Canned or frozen fruits and vegetables contain fewer nutrients than the fresh fruits and vegetables you buy at the store?
False – There’s usually little difference. The canned or frozen varieties may even have more nutrients because they are processed at their peak, during harvest. What is most important is to enjoy at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day regardless if they are fresh, frozen, canned, or dried.
