Free Infographic for Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month

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.


What's In a Serving?
