Most British Columbians, including children, don’t get enough vegetables and fruits.  Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide recommends 7-10 servings per day for adults. Children and teens need 4-8 servings per day.

What is a serving? 

  • 125 mL (1/2 cu) fresh frozen or canned vegetables
  •  one piece of fruit such as a banada or a “tennis ball” sized apple or orange.  

 Seasonally available B.C. fruits
