Eating more vegetables is one of the easiest things you can do to improve your health and wellbeing.

The current guidelines recommend that the average Australian adult should eat at least 5 serves of vegetables daily. But what does 1 serve look like?

One serve of vegetables is 75 g

A standard serve is about 75g (100–350kJ) or:

  • ½ cup cooked green or orange vegetables (for example, broccoli, spinach, carrots or pumpkin)
  • ½ cup cooked dried or canned beans, peas or lentils
  • 1 cup green leafy or raw salad vegetables
  • ½ cup sweet corn
  • ½ medium potato or other starchy vegetables (sweet potato, taro or cassava)
  • 1 medium tomato
