Eating Five Portions a Day – What Counts?

How much is a portion?
In most cases, a ‘portion’ is a typical serving or decent-sized helping of fruit and vegetables. For example, an apple, a cupful of grapes, a glass of fruit juice. The photographs on this page illustrate the amount that makes a typical portion. For very young children, the portion size may be smaller, but they can still aim for five child-sized portions. The emphasis should be on getting children to eat a variety of different types of fruits and vegetables, so that they consume a range of the beneficial compounds that they contain.
