Over all do you find that fruits are more healthy than vegetables? Do you think that there are more vitamins in one or the other? I know that fruits and veggies are both very healthy for us but I wonder which would benefit us to eat more of.

I do not think one is healthier than the other. Each catergory has their most healthy and least healthy. For example brocolli is much healthier than a iceberg lettuce, which is mostly water. I do think though that fruits have more calories in them then do vegetable, because fruits have more sugars in them.

Thanks for the response. I think you are right. One is probably not healthier than the other. And I guess it stands to make sense that fruits have more sugar content in them. I do try to have my son eat both vegetables and fruit equally.

I think they are both pretty healthy but veggies may have the advantage because they are lower in calories. I like both of them I prefer fruit, but because of my weight I think that veggetables are a better option. It just depends on the person I guess. Most fruits have a lot of good benefits going for them.

I think you need a well rounded diet in both of them. But if you cook the veggies then the fruit will be better because the nutrient is not cooked out of it - It is always better to eat it raw!

Both are equally healthy, but of course they have different nutritional values as with any other food item. Still, both are rich in fiber which is good for digestion.

Both are healthy for you. Vegetables are lower in calories and sugar, but fruits are probably just as good for you otherwise.
