what is a serving?

I’m assuming you mean fruits and vegetables. A serving is considered to be ½ cup of vegetables and cut up fruit, ½ of 100% juice, ¼ cup of dried fruit, and 1 cup of lettuce.

Generally, a small to medium piece of whole fruit is a serving. Click on “How many cups do you need?” to see how much you should be eating each day.
