June is Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month! Are you ready to celebrate?
To add to your Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month celebrations, we've whipped up a brand-new infographic. You see, MyPlate recommends that most adults get 3 and 1/2 to 5 cup servings of fruits and vegetables every day, but many people have a hard time visualizing a cup serving, and some fruits and veggies have cup-serving equivalents, rather than straightforward measurements (like leafy greens, for example).
All this can get confusing.
To help your clients learn more about how much of a fruit or vegetable constitutes a serving, check out this bright and engaging infographic. It's got a guide to MyPlate's cup equivalents for 9 common fruits and vegetables, along with beautiful photographs of each fruit and vegetable.
