How Many Times Do You Eat Fruit & Veggies in a Day?

How Many Times Do You Eat Fruit & Veggies in a Day?

Recent reports are showing that while most of us know the benefits of eating enough fruits and vegetables in a day, we aren't actually eating them. In fact only 32.6 percent of adults are eating fruit two or more times per day, and only 27.2 percent are eating vegetables three or more times a day. The recommended amount is currently at least five (fruits or veggies, or both) a day.

So I am curious about you guys -- How many times do you eat fruits & veggies in a day?

Three times a day - I have an apple or something in the am, veggies in my rice and a slice of melon during recess... oh wait, I have them 3-4 times. Depends on whether I'm having lunch at home or school. Sometimes I skip lunch at school because I'm full from recess. But if 4 times, it's more veggies during lunch and veggies during dinner and fruits after dinner. =)

fruits and vegies are the best! Everyday when I eat lunch my plate is always half full of 3 diferent types of vegies, usually its beet salad, boiled carrots, greek salad, boiled potatoes, boiled pumpkins grilled with olive oil and garlic and cucumbers. I eat 4 fruits a day, usually its apples, fresh pineapple, apricot, frapes, plums, mangos and watermelon... Today I ate 2 apples, 1 apricot and a bowl full of grapes. For lunch I ate beet salad, carrots and cucumbers! The list goesss onnnnnn!! :)

2-3 times a day, but I definitely get between 5-10 servings overall.

If it's servings, I get the right amount, but I usually double up my servings. So...I only eat fruits & veggies 3-4 times a day, but I get the amount of servings I need per day.

I don't eat fruits and veggies nearly enough. I'm not sure why, since I like most fruits and veggies. I'll have to think about this more.

I really should eat more than I do, but if I buy a lot of veggies and fruit they usually go to waste. I know that's a horrible excuse, but it's usually what happens.

I hardly eat anything else. That's what college cafeteria food will do to a girl though.

Do you mean servings, Fit? I might have a fruit or veggie heavy meal once a day with two other meals having maybe one serving each.

Oh wow. I'm horrible at this; I can't even remember the last time I ate fruits. But the veggies in my daily Subway sandwich counts for something. Right? I hope. ***"And yet, let them scorn me as they will, strong traits of their nature have intertwined themselves with mine."- Nathaniel Hawthorne
