Shopping & Storage Tips

Remember, fruits and vegetables have a lot of the same nutrients. Fruit is good with breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Here are some tips for buying and storing fruit:

  • Buy fresh fruits in season. Look for fruit from local farmers' markets or fruit stands.
  • Choose juices that are 100% real fruit juice. Fruit punch and fruit drinks are mostly sugar and water.
  • Compare prices of fresh, canned and frozen fruits and juices to get the most for your money.
  • Store bananas and unripe fruits at room temperature. Refrigerate all others that are fully ripe.

That's all for this food group. Can you guess the next food group?
