How many portions of fruit and vegetables should I eat every day? This simple question has several conflicting answers, depending on which source one selects for the answer. The most common response is, without question, 5 portions a day. For so long, this catchy phrase (1 of your 5 a day) has been the go-to rule of thumb for dietary fruit and vegetable intake. Originally conceptualized in 1988 as part of a campaign in California, the aim of the slogan was to kickstart healthy eating by offering consumers an instantly understandable rule of thumb to help achieve the goal of 400g of plant intake each day, made up of 5 x 80g servings.
