Instead of sitting down with a computer, you can be an athlete, and become world famous!! Also, eating fruit and veg helps you live longer. Eating these foods fights dangerous diseases, like Type 2 Diabetes.
My third reason is fruit and veg are natural. This means, not only can you buy fruit and veg from the supermarket, you can get seeds, and grow your own fruit and veg in your backyard!!

Plus, growing trees trap odors and pollutants.
Finally, there is a massive variety of fruit and vegetables. There are approximately 150 different types of common fruit and veg. Crunchy and juicy, with each fruit and veg bringing a different flavour, there is a guarantee that there are plenty you'll love!
