Which is healthier fruits or Vegetables? and why?

For example, if you wanted a vegetable that was high in vitamin A you could choose sweet potatoes, carrots, or butternut squash. All in all, each and every fruit and vegetable is unique and offers multiple vitamins and minerals, which are essential to your body. Therefore, one fruit or vegetable does not out weigh another fruit or vegetable.
