Is it okay if my 5 A Day is mostly fruit?


With only 1 in 10 Americans eating enough fruits and vegetables the short answer is yes, it is totally okay. We can all do a better job of enjoying more fruits and vegetables daily, so even if your five produce items are mainly fruit the fact that you’re consuming produce on a daily basis is great! Fruits and vegetables both provide our bodies with fiber, as well as important vitamins and minerals. Both fruits and vegetables are pretty similar in the amounts of those key nutrients that they provide.
