    Colourful eating brightens up your plate and it is a good indicator that you are getting variety in your vits and minerals. Red fruit n veg like carrots, peppers and tomatoes contain beta carotene, green veg like, cabbage broccolli and spinach contain iron. Thats just an example, but eat as many colours as you can for great tasting food and a wide range of nutritious elements emoticon emoticon emoticon
