What to Feed Kids Every Day

Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and Vegetables

Ideally, you'll divide the servings fairly equally between the two. But if you have a picky eater, set this minimum goal: at least one serving of dark-green or orange veggies daily. They have unique disease-preventing compounds. And take comfort in the fact that tomato sauce, salsa, and baked fries count toward your child's veggie servings too.

HOW MANY SERVINGS EACH DAY

Toddlers (age 2): 2 (Slice whole fruits, even grapes.)

Preschoolers (ages 3-4): 2-3

School-age Kids (ages 5-8): 2-4

WHAT'S IN A SERVING

1 cup corn

8 large strawberries

32 seedless grapes

1 cup broccoli

1 cup diced cantaloupe

1 cup any fresh fruit or veggie

10 baked fries

12 baby carrots
