Use This Calculator to Find Your Recommended Fruit and Vegetable Intake

How many fruits and vegetables should you eat each day? It’s a common question, but many people don’t realize that there is no right answer. The recommended daily fruit and vegetable intake varies from person to person, and it depends on factors like age, gender and physical activity level. This simple online calculator from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention can help you find yours.

Enter some simple info into the calculator, and it will estimate how many servings of fruits and vegetables you should be eating each day. It will also suggest staying active by undertaking a certain amount of exercise each day.

Once the calculator determines your recommended daily fruit and vegetable intake, it explains the best ways to meet those goals. For example, one small apple counts as one cup of fruit, and only 6 baby carrots count as 1/2 cup of vegetables. If the calculator recommends that you eat 2 cups of fruit per day, you can easily meet that goal before lunchtime!
