Eating Smart and Reducing Sodium
Eating 2 to 2½ cups (4 to 5 servings) each of fruit and vegetables every day as part of an overall healthy diet pattern may reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease, including heart attack and stroke. Even an additional ½ cup (one serving) of fruit and vegetables a day can make a difference in your health — a powerful step toward a healthier, longer life.
