Eating Smart with Fruits and Vegetables

Call to Action

Eating 2 to 2½ cups (4 to 5 servings) each of fruits and vegetables every day as part of an overall healthy diet pattern may reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease, including heart attack and stroke. Challenge yourself to add ½ cup (one serving) of fruit and vegetables a day. Even adding small amounts is a powerful step toward a healthier, longer life.
