Thank you for your question,
In healthy planning of diet more stress should be given in taking fruits & vegetables, as you are thinking.
These are good.
But more stress needs to be given to whole fruit than juice or canned ones.
Those provide fibers, often have less calories & can be taken in plenty.
They are also good sources of vitamins & minerals.
A simple way to see whether you are taking enough fruits & vegetables is included in this link.
You can use those links for planning your diet.
This link is also good for food planning.
I hope this information helps.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
Please feel free for any follow up query.
Best wishes.
