What is a Serving?
How big is a serving of vegetables or fruit? Following Canada’s Food Guide, here are some examples to help serve as a guide:
|One serving of vegetables or fruit =||1 medium-sized apple or orange (the size of a tennis ball)|
|1 medium stalk of broccoli (the length of a pen or the distance from your wrist to the top of your index finger)|
|1 cup (250 ml) of raw lettuce or spinach (size of your fist)|
|½ cup (125 ml) 100% fruit or vegetable juice (small juice glass)|
|½ cup (125 ml) of frozen peas or canned peaches (size of a computer mouse)|
