 CELEBRATE NATIONAL FRUIT AND VEGETABLE MONTH
 BY CALLING THE ALLIANCE FOR FOOD AND FIBER AT 800-266-0200
 LOS ANGELES, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- June is National Fruit and Vegetable Month. Celebrate by calling the Alliance for Food and Fiber at 800-266-0200 and get helpful information on including fruits and vegatables in your diet.
 The National Cancer Institute, along with many other health organizations, recommends eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. A low-fat, high-fiber diet including fruits and vegetables helps reduce risk of cancer.
 Getting five servings of fruits and vegetables daily is not as difficult as one may think. Here are some suggestions:
 -- Top a favorite frozen yogurt with fresh fruit.
 -- Have a salad for lunch.
 -- Drink a glass of juice.
 -- Put extra vegetables in soup.
 -- Add fruit to cereal.
 Are you including five servings of fruits and vegetables in your diet a day? Do you even know what a serving size is? Call the Alliance for Food and Fiber and find out. Remember fruits and vegetables are an important part of any diet.
 The Alliance's food safety hotline operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are six different food safety and nutrition messages. Callers can listen to a message and can also leave their name, address and phone number if they have questions or would like additional information. Messages with a phone number and area code will receive a return call on the next business day (Monday-Friday).
