Can you tell me if 5 a day is actually 5 vegetables & 5 fruits or a mixture from both totalling 5.Thankyou
5 a day referred to the total number of daily servings of fruits and vegetables combined that was previously recommended. With the new Dietary Guidelines released in 2005, the recommended numbers of servings of fruits and vegetables has increased and most Americans are not meeting their needs. Increasing the consumption of fruits and vegetables is possible because small steps add up-eating more fruits and vegetables is easier than you think!
