 vegetables - serving size?

I know this is a very basic question, but I have not been able to find
information on what would be considered one serving of vegetables.  For
fruits I assume it is one piece of fruit (for most fruits, anyway), but
what about vegetables?  I keep hearing "3 to 5 servings per day," but no
one ever says what a serving size is.

Thanks,

Scott

One half cup is the "accepted" serving size. (At least from what I've
read. :) Judy

Usually half a cup of cooked vegetables, or 1 to 1 1/2 cups of raw salad
vegetables.

One serving of vegetables is 1/2 c cooked or 1 cup raw.  For fruit it depends
on the size of the fruit.  Most fruits these days are usually two servings
because they are so big.  A serving of fruit is one small sixed fruit or 1/2
cup of the cut fruit or canned fruit.  I hope this helps you.......
