Smart Eating: Make Half Your Plate Fruits and Vegetables

Follow the Choose My Plate guidelines and make half your plate fruits and vegetables.

Buy in season. Seasonal produce are at their peak flavor and are usually less expensive.

Fall foods include apples, broccoli, carrots, grapes and potatoes. Click here for more seasonal foods.

Shop at farmer's markets. You'll find the freshest produce when you shop locally. (Western New York farmer’s markets).

Plan your fruits and veggies first. Although many people plan their meat or protein first, Registered Nurse Susan M. Gugliuzza recommends making fruits and veggies your priority and planning the rest of your meal around those.
