Marjorie Freedman, MS, PhD, shares new research that points to better overall nutrition among American adults who eat canned fruits and vegetables.
New study reveals children who ate canned fruits and vegetables had higher total fruit and vegetable intake and a better overall diet.

All forms – canned, fresh, frozen, dried and 100% juice – of fruits and vegetables provide needed nutrients that make up a healthy diet. (UC Davis)
Recipes made with canned ingredients deliver on health, taste and convenience.(University of Massachusetts)
Canned foods are comparable to cooked, fresh and frozen varieties in their nutrient contribution to the American diet. (University of Illinois)
