Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health

How many grams of fruit and vegetables should I eat?

Answer

The easiest way to get your recommended amount of daily fruits and veggies is to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables at each meal or eating occasion. Making fruits and vegetables the focal point of every meal will help you meet your recommended amount each day—and you won’t have to do all the math! The new healthy MyPlate icon developed by the USDA supports this concept … fill half your plate with colorful fruits and vegetables at every meal!
