Vegetables and health

Our history with vegetables began in a lush valley in Minnesota carved out by ancient glaciers.


We never stopped providing you with vegetables. 

American adults get more than 20 percent of their daily fiber, potassium and vitamin C from vegetables.

More good news: Vegetables contribute less than 10 percent of total daily calories. 

But fewer than 10 percent of Americans 19 and older get the recommended amount of vegetables each day. 

We help you get the vegetables you need that are convenient to prepare.

Among the General Mills brands that include vegetables:

  • Progresso soups
  • Muir Glen, our organic brand
  • Wanchai Ferry dumplings 
  • Yoki  farofa
Studies show that frozen vegetables are as nutritious as fresh, as freezing "locks in" vitamins and stops nutrient loss. Nutrients in vegetables are associated with a reduced risk of several chronic diseases.
