September is Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month

September 21, 2018

Employee Benefit & HR News

Most Americans know the importance of eating fruits and vegetables, but most still aren’t getting the daily recommended servings. The minimum requirement is 5 cups of fruits and vegetables a day. A cup is equal to one tennis ball-size piece of fruit or one cup of cooked or raw vegetables. Most individuals need to do some planning to ensure they are getting the minimum daily intake. Planning involves, purchasing, cleaning and preparing the fruit and vegetables. Keep a fruit and vegetable bowl in the refrigerator with a variety of ready-to-eat fruits and vegetables to snack on. Be sure to add a vegetable at meal time and double the portion so that fruits and vegetables make up one-half of you plate. For more ideas visit www.choosemyplate.gov .
