Fruits and Vegetables: Do You Get Enough?

Fruits and Vegetables: Do You Get Enough?

The American Cancer Society recommends eating five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day to help prevent cancer and promote good health. These foods contain important vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants and are usually low in calories. In general, those with the most color–green, red, yellow and orange– have the most nutrients.

Servings add up quickly:

  • ½ cup of fruit
  • 1 medium piece of fruit
  • ¼ cup of dried fruit
  • ¾ cup (6 ounces) of 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice
  • 1 cup of leafy vegetables
  • ½ cup of cooked or raw vegetables
