A vegetable can be broadly defined as any plant that is not a fruit, or a seed that can be used for food.
The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend eating plenty of vegetables, including different types and colours every day. Vegetables provide a range of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre, which are especially important in our diet.
The great thing about vegetables is that they can be cooked in a number of different ways or simply eaten raw—ensuring lots of variety.
