The Ministry of Health recommends that New Zealanders should eat five or more servings of fruit or vegetables every day. Ideally this means 3 serves of vegetables and 2 serves of fruit a day.
The link between health and vegetable consumption is even more compelling with vegetables rather than fruit – that is why the suggested ratio is 3:2.
