Healthy Diet

When you consider that most people don’t know what constitutes a serving size, it’s not surprising that 90 percent of adults and children don’t get the daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables. In honor of Fruits and Veggies More Matters Month, forget the cups and measurements and follow this one simple rule – at every meal, fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables. When you do, you’re guaranteed to meet dietary guidelines each and every day without the math. See a list of which fruits and vegetables are in season for the Fall >
