Research has shown that eating at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day as part of a healthy eating lifestyle can help reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Remember that all types of fruit and vegetables count, whether they are fresh, frozen, canned or dried. One tablespoon of our dried fruit a day counts as one of your recommended daily servings.
