Fruits and Vegetables

Children typically eat more fruit than vegetables, but what is important is to have a variety in your diet. You should have five servings a day of fruits and vegetables. One serving of vegetables equals 1/2 cup of raw or chopped vegetable or 1 cup of leafy vegetables. Many vegetables can be hidden in juices or pureed in sauces. A fruit serving is 1/4 of a cup of dried fruit.
