Eating More Fruits, Veggies

You should have three to five servings a day of vegetables and two to four servings a day of fruit, or a total of five to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables each day, according to the USDA. Here are some suggestions from the American Dietetic Association on how to boost the amount of fruit and vegetables you eat:

  • Add vegetables and even fruit to a sandwich. Experiment with peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, apples, pineapple and lettuce.

  • As a snack, choose 100 percent fruit juice to drink.

  • Don't forget fruit as part of your lunch.

  • Make a smoothie with fruit, fruit juice and frozen yogurt.

  • When you eat pizza, add vegetables such as broccoli, zucchini, spinach, bell peppers and mushrooms as a topping.
