The Five Alive Challenge invites you to eat 150 servings of fruits and vegetables in one month (5 a day). Swap out less healthy, calorie-rich foods for fruits and vegetables, increasing the amount of nutrition you receive and decreasing the number of empty calories.
What is a serving size? Here are some examples:
– 1 serving of fresh fruit (tennis ball)
– ½ cup of fresh fruit juice
– ¼ cup of dried fruit
– 2 Tbsp raisins
– ½ cup cooked vegetables
– 1 cup of vegetable juice
– 2 cups of raw leafy greens
– 2 medium carrots
Track the number of servings of fruits and vegetables you eat each day. To complete the challenge, track 150 servings or more.
