The USDA low cost food plan allows 40 percent of the budget for vegetables and fruits.
The plan calls for 2 – 3.5 cups of vegetables per day per person and 1.5 to 2.5 cups of fruits. The amount depends on the age of the individual.
The USDA plan calls for more vegetables and fruits than what people currently eat. I challenge you to look at your food budget to determine what percent you spend on fruits and vegetables.
