Vegetable Group Food Gallery

The table below lists some foods in the Vegetable Group divided into its five subgroups: Dark-Green Vegetables, Red and Orange Vegetables, Starchy Vegetables, Beans and Peas, and Other Vegetables. If you click on the hyperlinked foods, you will see a picture of a specific amount of that food that counts as 1 cup-equivalent of vegetables — or in some cases ½ or ¼ cup-equivalent.
