Weekly Dietitian Tip: Your Daily Five

It’s a good rule of thumb to strive for 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Typically, that means 3 cups of veggies and 2 cups of fruit. This might sound like a lot, but here are a few tips to make it easier:

  • Have 1.5 cups of vegetables at lunch and 1.5 cups of vegetables at dinner
  • Have 1 cup of fruit with breakfast, and 1 cup of fruit as an afternoon snack
  • Swap in fruit or vegetables for your evening snack
