Eat Five A Day
What’s it all about?
Fruit and vegetables are key to a healthier lifestyle. What’s more, they taste great and add variety to any meal.
Eating 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day may help reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers – the two main killer diseases in this country.
Eating a variety of fruit and vegetables will give you plenty of vitamins and minerals. They are also a good source of fibre and other substances such as antioxidants, all of which are important for your health.
- Fruit and vegetables are generally low fat, low calorie foods, so eating fruit and vegetables instead of foods that are high in fat and added sugar may help you achieve or keep to a healthy weight.
