Colors of Health

At the Mississippi County Arkansas Economic Opportunity Commission, we will keep you informed of the many health and nutrition services as they become available. Fruits and vegetables come in a rainbow of colors. Each color is a sign of different important nutrients. You can benefit from eating fruits and vegetables of different colors regularly. These include red, dark green, yellow, blue, purple, white, and orange. Health authorities advise making a special effort to eat more dark green vegetables, dark orange vegetables, and beans in particular to get the nutrients most of us need more of.
