  • - Most people know that eating fruits and vegetables is important for good health, but most of us still aren’t getting enough. This September, Client First, Inc. of South Carolina is proud to participate in Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month.

    Eating a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and fruits can help you:

    Lower your risk for heart disease and some types of cancer
    Maintain or reach a healthy weight
    Keep your body strong and active

    Here are some ideas to help you and your family fit more fruits and vegetables into your day:

    Keep a bowl of fruit handy where the whole family can see it.

    Cut up fruits and veggies ahead of time so they’re ready for quick, healthy snacks.

    Challenge your family to try a new veggie or fruit every week.

    Remember, eating more fruits and veggies can be fun – and it’s worth it!


    Want help choosing heart healthy foods? Take this shopping list with you to the grocery store:

    When it comes to your heart, what you eat matters. Follow these tips for heart-healthy eating:

    Eat less saturated and trans fat. Stay away from fatty meats, fried foods, cakes, and cookies.
    Cut down on sodium (salt). Look for the low-sodium or “no salt added” types of canned soups, vegetables, snack foods, and lunch meats.
    Get more fiber. Fiber is in vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.
    Take this list with you the next time you go food shopping.

    Vegetables and Fruits

    Eat a variety of vegetables and fruits. To save money, buy vegetables and fruits that are in season, frozen, or canned.

    Fresh vegetables such as tomatoes, cabbage, and broccoli
    Leafy greens for salads, like spinach and kale
    Canned vegetables low in sodium (salt)
    Frozen vegetables without added butter or sauces
    Fresh fruits such as apples, oranges, bananas, pears, and peaches
    Canned fruit in 100% juice, not syrup
    Frozen or dried fruit (unsweetened)
    Milk and Milk Products

    Look for fat-free or low-fat milk products. Or choose soy products with added calcium.

    Fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk
    Fat-free or low-fat yogurt
    Cheese (3 grams of fat or less per serving)
    Fat-free or low-fat soy milk with calcium
    Breads, Cereals, and Grains

    For products with more than one ingredient, make sure whole wheat or another whole grain is listed first.

    100% whole-wheat bread
    Whole-grain breakfast cereals like oatmeal
    Whole grains such as brown or wild rice, barley, and bulgur
    Whole-wheat or whole-grain pasta
    Meat, Beans, Eggs, and Nuts

    Choose lean cuts of meat and other foods with protein.

    Seafood, including fish and shellfish
    Chicken and turkey breast without skin
    Pork: leg, shoulder, tenderloin
    Beef: round, sirloin, tenderloin, extra lean ground beef
    Beans, lentils, and peas
    Eggs and egg substitutes
    Nuts and seeds
    Fats and Oils

    Cut back on saturated fat and look for products with no trans fats.

    Margarine and spreads (soft, tub, or liquid) with no trans fats
    Vegetable oil (canola, olive, peanut, or sesame)
    Non-stick cooking spray
    Light or fat-free salad dressing and mayonnaise
