No Longer Five Per Day

The old government recommendation for fruits and vegetables was simply "5 a day".

Obviously this was an informational compromise. Five servings of either fruits or vegetables could not be correct for everyone. But the message could not be personalized for every American!

Except that now it can. A new website allows Uncle Sam to provide you with more detailed advice after you input your age, gender, and level of physical activity.
