Tips & Tricks: Serving Size

Ever wonder just how big a “serving size” of fruits and vegetables is? We can help! 

Fruits:
As a general rule for a serving of fruit: 
  • a medium-sized piece of fruit is the size of a baseball
  •  ½ cup of fresh, frozen or canned fruit (opt for no sugar added options for maximum health benefits)
  •  ¼ cup of dried fruit (dried fruits are concentrated/higher in sugars)
  •  ½ cup of fruit juice (also contains more sugar)
Vegetables:
If you’re watching your weight or feel hungry more often than not, try filling up on vegetables:
  • 1 cup of raw, leafy greens 
  • ½ cup of your favorite fresh, frozen or canned veggies is a ½ cup
  • ½ cup of veggie juice
