Soundbites: The inside scoop on veggies

Adam Drewnowski, UW professor of epidemiology and director of the UW Center for Public Health Nutrition, the UW Center for Obesity Research and the UW Nutritional Sciences Program, answers our burning veggie questions. Are there vegetables that outshine other vegetables? What vegetables are the best in terms of nutrients and affordability? Are canned and frozen vegetables as good as fresh? How do we get children to eat more veggies?

Drewnowski discusses the topic in this downloadable video segment. See our related Q&A.
