Fruits and vegetables provide us with vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants.
Canada's Food Guide recommends that you get half a plate of fruits and vegetables at your meals. This is at least 7 servings each day for most adults. Planning your meals and snacks ahead of time can help ensure that you include fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables on a daily basis.
One serving of fruits and vegetables equals:
- medium piece of fruit, the size of a tennis ball
- green leafy veggies: 250 ml (1 cup)
- fresh or frozen fruit or cut vegetables: 125 ml (1/2 cup)
- dried fruit: 2 tablespoons
