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.
Canned foods provide important nutrients our bodies need, often at a lower cost-per-nutrient than fresh, frozen or dried forms. (Journal of Nutrition and Food Sciences)
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)

in Cooking Healthy Across America. As a traditional American
favorite, succotash is typically a cooked dish made with lima
beans, corn kernels and chopped red and green peppers. Although
lima beans are used in New England and generally define a
succotash, this version is special for its fiber-rich canned
soybeans, lending it a Midwestern flavor.
