We all need to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, but how much should we be consuming per day?
That is an easy one. Eat as much as you can. However, many organisms say that you should have at 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 the United Kingdom. If you are based in the U.S. – The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) created several calculators that tells us exactly how much we should eat based on our age group, sex, and daily activity levels.
