Understanding the Vegetable Food Group (Food Models)

February 06, 2017

No matter if they’re raw or cooked, fresh, frozen or dried, most vegetables play a key role in providing potassium, dietary fiber, vitamins C and A and other nutrients for your health.

From serving sizes and nutrients per serving, National Dairy Council can help explain the vegetable 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 vegetable food group. To download the original Food Models Vegetable Group resource, please click the download button on the right and see our tips below.
