I would just count them as a serving. If you have 2, an extra serving of fruit is not a big deal. 5 servings is just the minimum. As long as you are not using it to get to 5, it won't be a problem. Aim for 10 servings fruit/ veg, and it won't be an issue.

I count two as well (same for Kiwi which are about the same size). Since two equals around the same calorie count as an apple or banana, I used that for my logic.

My fruit serving rule (from a childhood promo here in NZ) is that a serving of fruit fits in the palm of your hand without being able to close your fingers (like an orange or an apple). If your fruit is small and you can fit 2-3 in the palm of your hand then I wouldn't count each fruit as one serving.

I am not sure, personally, I usually do two because the ones I buy are ultra small. I am curious to see what others say

How many clementines do you personally count as ONE fruit serving? 1 seems like too little to justify one full fruit serving. I was thinking 2!
