As a consultant on health and wellness, I would recommend that the national breakfast and lunch be supplemented with vegetables and fruits because they play important roles in reducing cases of bloat in the gut. Also, fruits and vegetables make people look young and youthful. In addition to that, they also play crucial roles in the building bones. It is also important to report that vegetables and fruits are nutritious in any form. Consequently, vegetables and fruits are diets that are universally described as healthy. They are amongst the simplest choices that people can make to improve their health. However, recent studies have shown that a large portion of the American population is not consuming enough vegetables and fruits (Rule & Phlipot, 2011). Besides, it has been proved that people who include vegetables and fruits in their diets more often have lower chances of dying from any disease cause compared to their counterparts who never take the food seriously (Hartwell & Gosling, 2012).
Steps That Will Be Employed In Incorporating Vegetables And Fruits In The National Breakfast And Lunch
To begin, parents will be provided with their favorite fruits thirty minutes after arrival. After that, sliced bananas will be chopped and added to the cereals whereas dried fruits will be added to the porridge. On the contrary, fruit salad will also be provided to individuals who would wish the whip them for their breakfast. Besides, blueberries will also be supplemented because it has antioxidants that prevent the skin from aging (Wise, 2010). Consequently, the fact that parents are our main guests, blueberries will be a remarkable addition to their diets because it has components that reduce shrinking and aging of the skin. Instead of supplementing the parents with snacks like biscuits, they will be provided with fruits to assist them in beating the afternoon and mid-morning lows. During lunch, parents will be supplemented with oranges and apples. On that regard, oranges will serve as the core source of vitamin C whereas the apples will provide fiber. Another important initiative that will be employed during the national breakfast and lunch is supplementing the parents with four portions of fruits at different times of the day as recommended by the experts. At the end of the day parents will be advised to change their diets and start incorporating fruits and vegetables more often because their health benefits are relatively incomparable (Wise, 2010).
Benefits Of Vegetables And Fruits
Fruits and vegetables are instrumental in reducing cases of bloat in the gut. Despite the fact that most instances of bloat are as a result of swallowed air from activities like drinking through straws, refraining from such lifestyles and adding vegetables and fruits to your daily diet will improve the health of your gut. On the contrary, incorporating fruits and vegetables into your diet will also guarantee you a better digestion than before and as far as we all want to stay healthy; it is extremely advisable to follow the proved nutritional guidance that will add value to their life. Besides that, fruits and vegetables make people look young and youthful by hydrating the skin and reducing wrinkles. Thus, although everyone should supplement their diets with vegetables and fruits, parents and other aging people in the society should be at the forefront in fulfilling that because it will bring positive difference to their skins (Wise, 2010).
Additionally, some fruits have antioxidants that play important role in keeping the DNA of the body and not unless they are included in diets, it will be extremely difficult to attain such health benefits. Not all fruits and vegetables are 80 to 90 percent water (Rule & Phlipot, 2011). However, they have a plethora that can make the skin to glow. Surprisingly, other than foods like fish and milk that are rich in calcium fresh fruits and vegetables are also significant in building healthy bones. Thus, in places where milk and other calcium supplements are short in supply, it is important that you turn on vegetables and fruits because they also contribute the growth of healthy bones. They offer high bioavailable minerals like calcium and magnesium that are relevant in the building of bones. Statistics have also shown that vegetables and fruits have small amounts of calories (Hartwell & Gosling, 2012).
Thankfully, such diets have emerged as part of the interventions that can be employed to prevent cases of lifestyle diseases like obesity and diabetes. Moreover, the diet can assist in reducing health complications like heart disorders and consequently help an individual to live a healthy life. It is extremely unfortunate to report that the current society is suffering from diseases like cardiovascular diseases that can be avoided by incorporating vegetables and fruits in their diets on daily basis. Far from that, studies have proved that fruits and vegetables are nutritious in any form. Thus, people can feed on them on any desirable form because they tend hold the same nutritional value even when they have been turned into different forms. Other than providing exceptional health benefits to people’s bodies, vegetables and fruits add beauty and color to your plate. In retrospect to that, they are delicious and fun to eat alongside being in enormous varieties (Wise, 2010).
To sum up, it is evident that eating food that is rich in vegetables and fruits is significant in improving people’s health and improving human lifespan as a whole. Besides, vegetables and fruits are cheap and available in many accessible forms like onions, kiwi, figs, zucchini, kale, cabbage, collards, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and turnips amongst other types of vegetables. Other varieties like starchy veggies can be consumed without being worried about weight. Hence, public enlightening measures should be put in place to encourage people to add vegetables and fruits to their diets and help reduce cases of diseases that are indeed avoidable (Rule & Phlipot, 2011).
