Where can I find a list of fruit and vegetable serving sizes?

 

Q. Where can I find a list of fruit and vegetable serving sizes?

 

A. This website has a lot of great information about serving sizes. To start, check out our downloadable quick nutrition charts for fruits and vegetables.

However, even the most well-versed nutrition professionals don’t have all these measurements memorized! So let’s make it easier: fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables at each meal or eating occasion.

 

In fact, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released a replacement for its food pyramid [MyPyramid] in support of dietary recommendations from the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010 to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables. The new healthy plate icon is sectioned off to show fruits and vegetables as half of the plate making the recommendation easy to understand.

 

Check out our About the Buzz article for the details of MyPlate and what it means to you.
