Bondi Junction Sydney Nutritionist Recipe Of The Week “Fruit Salad”
Bondi Junction Sydney Nutritionist-Are you getting enough fruit in your diet per day? The recommended daily intake of fruit per day is 2.
There are lots of ways you can increase the number of serves of fruit. But, what is a serve? What if you eat a bowl of dried apricots? Or a peach? Or a few raspberries? What makes a serve? It varies for different types of fruit. Here’s a guide.
- 1 medium piece (e.g. apple, banana, orange or pear)
- 2 small pieces (e.g. apricot, kiwi, fruit, plums)
- 1 cup of chopped fruit or occasionally canned (with no added sugar)
It pretty obvious that most Australians would benefit from increasing more fruit intake in their diet, and here is why:
