“Fruits and vegetables, your dietary essentials.”
For many, fruits and vegetables remain inaccessible due to their cost; they are often more expensive than unhealthy snacks and junk foods. Yet they are fundamental components to maintaining overall good health. The IYFV slogan highlights the importance of fruits and vegetables in contributing to good nutrition. Ensuring that fruits and vegetables are available, accessible, and affordable to everyone is fundamental in achieving food security and combatting malnutrition, and everyone has a role to play.
