It would be hard to say what are the healthiest because they all have differing nutrient values. But spinach is great for iron. I like broccoli and cauliflower and they are good for lots of nutrients like calcium. Bell peppers add a great taste to pastas and salads. Carrots add sweetness. Kiwi fruits are good for vitamin C. Apples are sweet and contain a reasonable amount of fibre. Bananas are yummy and make great smoothies and cakes. I could go on and on!
But don't forget oatmeal, yogurt, lean meat, olive oil and such good stuff! :)

Power Fruits and Veggies, according to the Clevland Clinic
Bananas are the most filling and full of potassium, jacket potatoes, tomatoes, apples, parsnips all fruit/veg is good although citrus fruits are a bit sharp on the stomach if it`s empty. I read somewhere that pineapple is bad for the heart but can`t confirm and don`t mix cranberries with Warfarin.
Porridge oats are very satisfying and lower cholesterol.
All of them.
Apples are a good snack before lunch, say 3 times a week. The fiber in them help to fill you up.
