We all need to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, but how much should we be consuming per day?
Everyone should at have least 5 portions of (seasonal) fresh fruit and vegetables a day.
For example, adults should have at least 80g of fruit and/or vegetables in their diet.
Children should also eat fruits and veggies, at least 5 portions a day, all depending on their age and daily activity.
See NHS live well (U.K.)
If you are based in US – The Center for Disease Control and Prevention created several calculators that tells us exactly how much we should eat based on our age group, sex, and daily activity levels.
