Heidi has the correct answer.
Minimum of 5 serving of fruits and vegetables per day, COMBINED.
WW does not specify the minimum number of servings for vegetables or fruits.
If you have the points, you could have 4 fruits and 1 vegetable... but a better choice will be the oposite....
Minimum of 3 vegetables and 2 fruits sounds fine.
More tnan 5 servings is great, especially if the extra ones are vegetables.
Most vegetables are 0 points per serving.
Starchy vegetables "cost" you points.
It takes about 4 1/2 cups of raw fresh broccoli, for instance, to make it 1 point(because of the low calories and fat and high Fiber)
One cup of broccoli is about 25 calories, 0.2 fat and 2.5 fiber.
The more vegetables the better.
The more colorful vegetables, the better.

Viva le VEGETABLES!!!
The botoom line is common sense... If I eat lots of fruits and vegetables and still lose the WW recomended weekly weight, I'll continue with what works for me.....
