How Many Servings A Day Do Your Kids Need?

Children two to six years old as well as women who are not very active - 5 servings: 2 fruits, 3 vegetables

Older children, teen girls and men who are not very active - 7 servings: 3 fruits, 4 vegetables

Teen boys and active men and women - 9 servings: 4 fruits, 5 vegetables

Kids who get enough nutrition every day decrease their risk for things like ear aches, allergies, colds and the flu. (For adults, it's heart disease, cancer and stroke.) They also maintain memory function, eyesight, strong bones and more.

Keep in mind too little of our food is eaten raw. Cooking at temperatures over 120 degrees kills much of the nutrition in most foods. We're trying to achieve the impossible - maintain health while eating food that does not support health.

You may be thinking:
  • "My kids won't eat that many fruits and veggies every day."
  • "I don't like buying, washing and cutting them up, only to see them rot in the fridge."
  • "My kids simply don't like the taste of fruits and vegetables."
That's why there's BarleyLife® Xtra. It's an easy way to get eighteen fruits and veggies every day and more.
