Healthy Eating

Choose a variety of foods and beverages from each food group to build healthy eating styles. Include choices from all the food groups to meet your calorie and nutrient needs when planning or preparing meals and snacks.


Any fruit or 100% fruit juice counts as part of the Fruit Group. Fruits may be fresh, canned, frozen, or dried, and may be whole, cut-up, or pureed.  The amount of fruit you need to eat depends on age, sex, and level of physical activity.  Recommended daily amounts are shown in the table below.
