The CDC Guide to Strategies to Increase the Consumption of Fruits and Vegetables

Healthy eating does not need to be difficult. In fact, getting the proper nutrients in your diet can be simple and stress-free. One key to getting the proper nutrients in your diet is to plan meals and snacks that are nutritious and also delicious. Cooking can be a great way to experiment with new flavors and create tasty, healthy meals.

Results of the Wellstream Personal Health Risk Assessment in 2016, indicated that 80% of UNMC participants stated they received less than five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Additionally, 84% of participants reported they received less than five servings of high fiber foods a day. These are modifiable risk factors that can be improved. To help improve these numbers, we have created a healthy cookbook consisting of quick, tasty, and nutritious meals.

The goal of this cookbook is to enhance the health and wellbeing of those at UNMC. If you have a recipe that you would like to share with others, we would love to hear from you!
