Five servings of fruits and veggies a day.

  1. Now here is the question. I just had banana split. It had pinapple, strawberries and cherries on it. Now should I count that as one serving of fruit or three? :chuckle :spin:

    I agree with Whisper....4 fruit servings and prolly 2 dairy servings.....hehehehehehehe!

    but that is still only eight portions of fruit and veg a day, it should be more... at least twelve, so three puddings sounds about right.

    After all in Egypt they have a much lower rate of Colo rectal CA, attributed to the fact they eat on average 11 portions of fruit and veg a day!

    But I bet there ice cream is always gloopy

    Question: Does carrot cake count as one vegetable or more?

    I am so impressed with all the the critical thinking going on here today.

    Hey, we get paid to think critically......so it is easy to rationalize....

    1 big piece of carrot cake is 2 veg and if there was cream cheese frosting that makes prolly 1-1 1/2 dairy.....hehehehehehe Omigosh, gwenith....youare so right.....chocolate os a bean....so that would be a veg......

    PS: If the carrot cake had raisins and pineapple in it that makes 2 fruit to go with your veg and dairy
