What EXACTLY constitutes a serving of fruit and or vegetables?

I am confused as to what one serving of fruit or vegetables is?
For example, if I eat one apple and 5 berries for breakfast and a veggie stew(with 5 different kinds of veggies) for lunch and a salad for dinner followed by another apple, how many serving of fruit/ veggies is this exactly? Is one apple a serving?
I think that a lot of folks don't quite understand.

Thanks. I was just trying to figure out the amount I probably consume on a daily basis, inspired by your survey on fruit and veg servings.
If I were try to figure out the amount I eat per day, it would probably be about 8 servings a day.
