Why do we need them?
All research seems to be pointing in the same direction. Eating more fruit and vegetables will give you big health benefits. Not only for their contribution to your needs for fibre, vitamins and minerals, but in helping to prevent heart disease and cancer. And if you grow your own in the garden using organic methods, you will be eating the tastiest and healthiest of all, with no fear of harmful chemicals.

How much should we eat?
The UK government recommends that we eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day. A portion can be one piece of fruit, one glass of fruit juice or one serving of vegetables. And remember, if you smoke, you need more vitamin C than a non-smoker, so it's even more important to aim for five. Follow the links below for more information on the fruit or vegetables of your choice.
