It's your choice

 

The recommended quantity of fruits and veggies a person should eat each day depends on gender, age and physical activity. For example, a 45-year-old woman who exercises at least 30 minutes every day should eat a minimum of 2 cups of fruit and 2½ cups of vegetables. The choice of produce is up to her; however, nutritionists recommend choosing different colors for various health benefits. Develop your personal eating plan by consulting a dietitian or visiting ChooseMyPlate.gov.
