A variety of coloured food on our plate is much more interesting than a plate filled with foods of the one colour.
Imagine sitting down to dinner. You have a lovely white plate in front of you. Now you are going to fill it with food. What is your choice? Will you fill your plate with white steamed fish, mashed potato, cauliflower and white sauce?
Or would you prefer to fill your lovely white plate with green broccoli, red tomato, orange pumpkin or sweet potato, yellow corn and purple beetroot?
Think of your plate as an artist's palette. You can paint the inside of your body with all these colourful foods.
Foods are different colours depending on the minerals and antioxidants they contain. We know that leafy greens are good for us.
Deep red and purple fruit and vegetables are also very good for us. They contain many antioxidants to keep our body healthy. Try adding some to your diet soon.
