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.
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, this list is constantly being added to, so its worth
revisiting regularly for new ideas. If you have a recipe, serving
suggestion, or a novel way to persuade children to eat more
fruit and vegetables please feel free to submit your ideas.
