How many days?

The inspiration for this article was prompted by a reader, the following questions:

I often hear that about 7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, but sometimes refers to seven servings of fruits and vegetables, 7, 7, and sometimes both.

7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day is a medium that is recommended if you are able to eat more, would be even better. However, there are more, much more. * The English wordAim for a target of 5 per day, while Canadians recommend ** 7 or more per day for adolescents and adults.

Also, what is a service? An apple? A bowl of salad?

One part will be about 80 degrees. For example, an apple or 2 small plums or fruit, cereal bowl, dessert / salad or 3-4 heaped tablespoons of cooked vegetables. A glass of juice is also a party, although I prefer to eat the fruit. And a serving of beans a dayTaken into consideration if you are already a vegetarian, you automatically before. The British and Canadians agree on portion sizes.

Thus, if the parties match, this means that the English are encouraged to consume less healthy than their parents in North America, or simply less?

My point is that the vegetables depends on the quality of your fruit. When you grow up or get them from a local source of organic nutrients and be moreIf the non-organic supermarket. These figures are general guidelines and should be treated as such.

Thus, given the level is fairly easy to achieve these objectives should be. How are you? is a way to help a food diary leaves or fruits and vegetables, keep track of usage.

Finally, here are some ideas to increase consumption of fruit and vegetables

- Healthy snacks - fruit instead of biscuits or crisps (chipsNorth America). Furthermore, scientists agree that most of the food we eat fruit meal should be, rather than with meals. One more reason for him a small snack.

- With a portion of every meal

- Breakfast of raisins or other dried fruit
Lunch - cooked vegetables and / or salad and / or beans / legumes
Dinner - cooked vegetables and / or salad and / or beans / legumes
