THD Wednesday Challenge: Eat Your Fruits and VeggiesPosted: September 10, 2013
According to ChooseMyPlate.gov, adults need 2 cups of fruit and 2.5-3 cups of vegetables every day. Fruits and vegetables are a great source of vitamins and fiber. They can also provide extra hydration, for those who aren’t big fans of drinking water.
Getting 5 servings a day can sometimes be tricky. Everyone has different ways of getting their five a day. One tip for getting 5 or more servings is to have at least one fruit or vegetable with each meal and to have a fruit or veg as a snack as well. Eating a little throughout the day is much easier than trying to get all of your servings in one meal.
What are your favorite tips for getting your 5 servings a day?
