Understanding the Fruit Group (Food Models)

March 16, 2017

Fruits in the Fruit Group include fresh fruits, of course, but also canned, frozen or dried fruits, as well as 100 percent fruit juice.

These foods play an important role providing potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C and folate (folic acid) to your diet.

From serving sizes and nutrients per serving, National Dairy Council can help explain the fruit food group with our online food models.

The food models are images that convey the serving size and provide nutrient content information of commonly enjoyed foods from the fruit food group. To download the original Food Models Fruit Group resource, please click the download button on the right and see our tips below.
