How many fruits and vegetables do women need?

Answer

The minimum suggested daily intake of fruits and vegetables for a 31-50 year old sedentary woman (30 minutes or less of activity a day) is 1 ½ cups of fruit and 2 ½ cups of vegetables according to the USDA. However, women that are more active can consume more fruits and veggies still staying within their recommended daily caloric needs. A good rule of thumb is to try to make half-your-plate fruits and vegetables for every meal and snack.
