    Introduction: Food provides not only essential nutrients needed for life but also other bioactive compounds for health promotion and disease prevention (1). Fruits play a major role in human diet. Diet rich in fruits is commonly recommended for their health-promoting properties. Fruits have anciently a place in dietary guidance because of their concentrations of vitamins, especially Vitamins C and A; minerals, especially electrolytes; and more recently phytochemicals, specifically antioxidants. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional survey was conducted among dental students in Saveetha Dental College. A total of 150 dental students were assessed using a standard questionnaire comprising 15 questions regarding the health benefits of consumption of fruits. It was distributed among 1 year to postgraduate dental students. Conclusion: From the study conducted, we can conclude that there is awareness of health benefits on the consumption of fruits. Increasing the consumption of fruit optimizes their health and reduces the risk of chronic diseases, approx. 27% of strokes and 15% heart diseases.
