I don't know exactly how many servings I'm eating each day. I'm probably not always getting the recommended amount either. I was trying to eat more since I'm pregnant but I guess I stopped putting in the extra effort....now I am feeling kind of bad. I know this isn't a good remedy, but I do take my prenatal vitamin everyday. I'm probably getting enough veggies, because I eat a lot of those even when I am not pregnant. I was craving fruits earlier in my pregnancy, but not so much anymore. If anything I need to be eating more fruits. The fruits I really want aren't available here yet. I want watermelon and cherries
Actually most of my diet right now consists of fruits and veggies..One of my fave late night snacks are carrot sticks and dip..I eat some fruit with breakfast and lunch..I try to incorporate veggies into my main dish at dinner as well as a side..Ive already had an orange..an apple and some grapes(just the staples are available at our store right now)..Ive been craving cauliflower too for some reason so Ive been eating that with french onion dip..LOL..Today for lunch I had a spinach salad with red and yellow bell peppers chicken, cauliflower and raspberry vinegarette(sp?)..I suppose its better than pickles and icecream..LOL
I eat lots of fruit and *try* to get in some veggies every day, but it doesn't always work! I love grapes, oranges, bananas, most fruit, so that is never a problem. I remember when I was pregnant with my daughter I would drink those V-8 fruit fusions to try and get in some veggies because veggies did not sound good when I was pregnant with her.
I think taking prenatals helps give our bodies some vitamins and I don't think our babies are going to have any problems resulting from us not getting the recommended amount each day.
I eat a lot of veggies. I need to eat more fruit, but I just can't keep enough in the house. I bought me a bag of apples just for me, and my dh gave them to the kids. I got one apple, and never got to make applesauce. I was really bummed out. I am thinking about going to sams club, and buying fruit in bulk because my kids eat so much fruit.
We always have a veggie dish with dinner and I have been snacking on a lot of fruit lately. I get my fruit & veggie servings though primarily through a juice called Mona Vie so I'm getting the nutrients/antioxidants I need that way
I've always loved fruits & veggies so I get a lot of them. I take an orange to work for my morning snack everyday. Every dinner has a veggie serving. I snack on sugar snap peas and tomatoes like you wouldn't imagine haha
I'm eating more fruits than vegetables. I am usually cooking for one at night, and by the time I want dinner I don't want to be bothered cooking a vegetable! I need to start cooking some microwave veggies or eating raw. I often buy a bag of salad telling myself I'm going to eat more salads, and then it goes bad. But I'm with the other ladies that feels more comforted by taking my prenatals. At least I know my babe is getting some extra nutrients that way!
Now that my M/S is easing up a bit and giving me some days were I feel better, I am back up to my normal veggies intake. It's around 5-6 servings a day, mainly because I eat pretty big servings a few times a day. I'm not a huge fruit person, and especially during this pregnancy as anything sweet is unappealing, but I do try to eat a banana with peanut butter daily. So, I guess that's 6-7 total, but it's what I eat pregnant or not, so I guess I haven't up'd it at all specifically for pregnancy.

not nearly enough...I try to do a big salad daily but usually its more like 2x a week. I do banana and cheerios for breakfast everyday. I need to buy more naked drinks so I can get daily intakes of fruit!
