Are Intake Recommendations for Fruits and Vegetables Meant for the Whole Day?


Q. Hi I’m confused when it says your suppose to have 2 cups fruit is that with every meal or to make it add up to 2 cups for the whole day

A. Great question!  Intake recommendations for fruits and vegetables are based on gender, age and physical activity.  Whether it’s 2 cups or more, the recommendation is for the whole day.  Visit our Fruit & Veggie Recipe Database for easy recipes to meet your recommended intake of fruits and veggies!
