Getting 5+ servings of fruits and veggies every day can sometimes be challenging. But I have a good way of getting them all in one meal.
I have a fruit smoothie for lunch. I put in my favorite five fruits and blend them all together with some vitamin water (very few calories) and a scoop of protein powder and it makes a great shake.

I make up a batch of" Chicken Kale Vegetable "soup and "Turkey Veggie Joe "mix served on whole grain slim buns. Alternate lunches for a few days. I add one seving of whole grain crackers with soup and plate of fruit with the Joes.
Delicious and nutritious. getting several servings of veggies a day.
I like chewing gum while I prepare dinner, or lunch, to avoid licking fingers and snacking on things I don't really want in my diet. Now, if it's fruit or veggies I'm getting ready, then I skip the gum and nibble away, a good way to help get in that extra serving of fruit or veggie.
I often eat half a serving of both protein and carbs with a regular size serving of veggies AND then I add at least two or three servings of veggies for my meals only. Most of the time the veggies I add consist of salad greens without dressing. I love he taste of plain old salad greens with my meals. For snacks I eat fruit and some kind of protein. Of course, I drink a lot of water every day, too.
