GoBrite is a word we coined to remind parents and kids of the FIVE COLORS of healthy fruits and vegetables that have the variety of phytonutrients kids need to live healthy and do their best in school: GREEN, ORANGE, BLUE, RED and WHITE.
GoBrite Kids will produce music to help educate kids.
"Eat More Plants" (CDC)
"Plant foods provide our bodies with vital nutrients. Produce offers a rich source of fiber to satisfy hunger. Fruits and vegetables are naturally rich in disease-fighting antioxidants and health-protecting phytochemicals such as lutein, vitamin C, and lycopene. Your daily food choice makes a difference. Harness the power of phytonutrients by increasing the amount of plant based foods in your diet." (US Center for Disease Control)
The Power of Phytonutrients
“Over the past decade, a wealth of scientific validation has emerged to support the role of diverse phytonutrients as frontline defenses against a host of diet- related diseases, from heart disease to cancer. Phytonutrients are the future of medicine.” Dr.JenniferToews (USDA)
“It’s no longer good enough to just eat lots of fruits and vegetables, you must eat the fruits and vegetables that have the phytonutrients your body needs.” New York Times, June 13, 2013
Sadly, 83% of kids don't get enough of the healthy phytonutrients they need.
