Health Care Comments Off
  1. Snack with raw vegetables instead of potato chips.
  2. Add fruits in breakfast.
  3. Prefer juice instead of a usual coffee, tea or soda.
  4. Wash fruits and vegetables with water and scrub with a dish brush when appropriate.
  5. Throw away the outer leaves of leafy vegetables, such as lettuce and cabbage.
  6. Peel and cook when appropriate, although some nutrients and fiber may be lost when produce is peeled.
  7. Avoid fruits and vegetables that look brownish, slimy or dried out. These are signs that the product has been held at an improper temperature.
  8. Wash cutting boards with hot water, soap and a scrub brush to remove food particles.
  9. Wash hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food, especially fresh whole fruits and vegetables and raw meat, poultry and fish. Clean under fingernails, too.
