When it comes to good nutrition, all forms of fruits and vegetables matter—fresh, frozen, canned, dried and 100% juice. With 200+ options and a variety of convenient packaging to make fruits and vegetables easy to store and easy to serve, there’s bound to be something to please everyone!
 
Fresh, Frozen, Canned, Dried, 100% Juice - All forms of fruits and vegetables matter
  • Most frozen and canned foods are processed within hours of harvest, so their flavor and nutritional value are preserved. 5 Facts about Canned Foods
  • Studies show that recipes prepared with canned foods had similar nutritional values to those prepared with fresh or frozen ingredients.
  • Canned foods are "cooked" prior to packaging, so they
    are recipe-ready.
  • Frozen foods also require little preparation—washing
    and slicing, for instance, is already done.

 

All forms of fruits and vegetables count toward your daily recommendation.
