FAQs

Are frozen veggies as good as fresh?

There is a lot of debate over whether fresh or frozen vegetables are better. Some people argue that fresh vegetables are more nutritious because they haven’t been exposed to the freezing process, which can break down some of the nutrients. Others argue that frozen vegetables are just as nutritious as fresh vegetables, and sometimes even more so because they’re picked at the peak of ripeness and then quickly frozen, which locks in their nutrients. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what you prefer. If you have access to fresh, locally grown vegetables, then go for those. But if you’re looking for convenience or want to save money, then frozen veggies are a great option too.

 

How much is a serving of vegetables for a child?

The answer to this question depends on the age of the child. For example, a one-year-old child should have about one-half cup of vegetables per day, while a four-year-old child should have about one cup of vegetables per day. Of course, these are just general guidelines and you should consult with your child’s pediatrician to determine the specific amount of vegetables that your child should be eating each day.
