Last year Little Guy declared, "I'm a fruitatarian!" Yesterday he asked (in light of an earlier conversation about the need to eat at least ONE vegetable a day), "How many pieces of fruit am I supposed to eat in a day?"
Remembering the banner on the raisin box I said, "Five." Though I think it's supposed to be five servings of fruit or vegetables.
And then I thought, Five pieces of fruit a day... times seven people... WOW!
That's 245 apples a week, 1050 a month, and 12,775 a year. Assuming a cost of $1.49 a pound, with each apple at half a pound, that adds up to $9,517 a year.
I don't think so.
