Reviewers Comments: This colorful slideshow is well organized and follows a consistent format. The content outline is presented at the beginning and themes flow nicely throughout. The information is research-based, accurate, current, and attributed to sources, including MyPyramid and Fruits & Veggies--More Matters™. Vitamin and mineral benefits of fruit and vegetable consumption are listed. Eating a variety of different colors of fruits and vegetables is encouraged, and benefits of each color are also included. Food safety and selection information is a large part of the presentation as well, including ripening, storage, and hand washing. At the end of the slideshow, there are many links to resources and additional information on the topics presented.

This resource is appropriate for older teenagers, adults, parents and caregivers. The information presented on the slides and in the handout is appropriate for low literacy levels. The slides include some animation and no sound, so speakers are not necessary. The slideshow has clear navigation. A previous background with nutrition education and experience with the topics presented is recommended when using the slides in a lecture setting.
