Back in the "Deal A Meal" days, cooked veggies were 1/2 cup and raw were 1 cup, that is how I've counted it since then..............but usually, veggies fill you up so much, eating more won't do a thing to you anyway.

I count 100g of vegetables as a serving.

The government advice here is that 80g counts as one, but 100g is easier to add up and is more generous.

I always thought it was one cup of raw, leafy vegetables like kale & spinach (which cooks down to around 1/2 cup), and 1/2 cup otherwise (raw or cooked chopped veggies).

Cooked or raw? I know there is a difference there since many vegetables lose volume when cooked. Also, greens have a bigger serving size than others.

I think it is usually a cup.
