Fresh fruit and vegetables are the principal foods that make up the Mediterranean diet, characterized mainly by the consumption of plant-based foods.

According to the food pyramid, it is advisable to consume five portions of fruit and vegetables on a daily basis, ranging from breakfast to the snacks between meals. The consumption of fruit and vegetables guarantees a correct intake of vitamins and minerals, while reducing one’s calorie count. Furthermore, fruit and vegetables are a great source of water, while the fiber intake has a filling effect. It is important to choose fruit and vegetables that are in season, to limit the risk of consuming harmful substances used in agriculture, as well as contributing to the preservation of biodiversity.
