How many cups of fruits and vegetables should I eat every day?

 

Q. Do we need two cups of fruit and two cups of vegetables or is it two cups combined?

 

A. It is about 2 cups each. However, your recommended number of cups for fruits and vegetables varies depending on your activity level and whether you are male or female, in addition to your age. Visit our Fruit and Veggie Daily Intake chart to find out exactly how many cups you need per day! When it comes to fruits and vegetables, remember More Matters. Try to make half-of-your-plate consist of fruit and vegetables at each meal. This will guarantee that you are meeting your daily recommendations.
