Secretary-General's message for the closing of the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are the foundation of a healthy and diversified diet. Rich in nutrients, they strengthen our immune system and fortify it against disease.

By declaring 2021 as the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables, the United Nations brought attention to their critical contribution to human and environmental health.
