The beginning of July marks the beginning of national berry month and the University of Illinois Extension Program is buzzing with excitement about berry month.


Lisa Peterson is the Nutrition and Wellness Educator with the program. She says July is the perfect month for berry month to spread awareness for what all berries can do for the human body.



Peterson says there is not necessarily one berry that is any better than the rest but it is important to get berries in your system for fiber.



Peterson appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
