Why are colorful fruit and vegetables important to our health?

It turns out that a lot of the phytonutrients that are good for us also produce bright colors in vegetables and fruits.

What are phytonutrients?
The word phytonutrient is derived from the Greek phyton for "plant" and means a nutrient from a plant.  They can repair damage to cells, help build our immune systems, and act as antioxidants.

Seek out various colors of fruits and vegetables every day and eat them.
