There is no question that children
need to eat their vegetables. Studies
indicate, however, that the
majority of children and adolescents are
consuming less than half of the daily
recommendations of fruits and vegetables.
The United States Department
of Agriculture (UDSA) recommends
that adolescents and adults consume
five to thirteen servings of fruits and
vegetables daily, equal to approximately
2-1/2-- 6 cups. For a person eating
approximately 2000 calories per day
this would be about 4-1/2 cups daily.
Younger children, ages 6 and under,
should be consuming a minimum of 2
cups of vegetables and one cup of fruit
each day, although if you look at your
child’s daily menu, this requirement
most likely is not being met.
