September is fruit and veggie month, so now is the perfect time to examine your fruit and veggie intake. Most people are unsure of how many fruits and vegetables they should consume each day or are confused by specific serving sizes. How do you know whether you and your family are getting enough fruits and veggies?
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s MyPlate graphic is designed to help people choose the proper portion sizes for each food group at mealtimes. According to MyPlate guidelines, you should fill up half of your plate with fruits and vegetables at each meal. Making fruits and veggies the focal point of your plate will ensure that you and your family are eating healthier and consuming as many fruits and veggies as possible each day.
