How much fruit should I eat each day?

A healthy diet includes two pieces of fruit every day. Okay, well, sometimes it’s 1,5. It depends on the fruit’s size and weight. ⁠

Because fruit varies in size and weight, there are some considerations.

One medium-sized piece counts as 1 out of the 2. An apple or a banana, for example. And also this pear pictured.⁠

⁠When it comes to larger or smaller fruits, ⁠every 100 grams counts as one piece and half a pomegranate contains about 100 grams of pomegranate seeds.⁠⁠⁠

Are there any additional considerations?

  • Counting pieces is still an excellent way to balance your diet in various situations. For instance, if you wish to eat apples, bananas, or pears. Each medium-sized piece of these kinds of fruit weighs around 100 grams.
  • We estimate fruit servings and portion sizes whenever we measure fruit in grams rather than pieces.
  • People differ in age, size, and nutritional needs. As a result, recommended serving sizes vary. Adults should consume 100 g portions of fruit.
  • If you are used to eating three servings of fruit each day instead of two, this is also considered a healthy habit for most people.
