Why grow and eat a rainbow?
The dazzling colours of fruit and vegetables are given to them by a range of natural compounds which can be beneficial to health. In fact, research has shown that diets rich in these colourful crops may reduce the risk of a whole range of diseases, from heart disease to cancer. That’s why doctors and dietitians recommend we ‘Eat a Rainbow’.
Last year we embarked on a research programme with Exeter University to identify which vegetables not only taste good, but also have the highest levels of specific nutrients, known to be important for leading a healthy life.
