Yep, that's how many fruits and vegetables the government says kids should eat each day. (By the way, your mom needs to eat seven servings per day, your dad needs at least nine, and teenage boys may need 12!)
Five may sound like a lot, but it's really not if you know how to keep score. Here's how easy it is to eat those five a day:
1. Snack on an apple, pear, orange or banana. (Any medium-size piece of fruit counts as one serving.)
2. Have a half cup of grapes, berries or cut-up melon. Each is a serving.
3. Eat a bean burrito. (A half cup of beans or peas counts as a serving.)
4. Toss some salad onto your dinner plate. (A cup of any leafy green vegetable is a serving. )
5. Dip some baby carrots, celery and broccoli into salsa. (A half cup of each of those veggies is a serving.)
6. Sip some juice. (Just six ounces of 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice equals a serving. Go easy, though, fruit juice has a lot of calories.)
7. Snack on raisins or other dried fruit. (A quarter cup -- or small box of raisins -- counts as a serving.)
See, that's seven ways to eat five!
