Most people know we should be eating more fruit and veg. But most of us still aren’t eating enough.

Attempt to eat no less than five parts

of an assortment of products of the soil

consistently. It may be simpler

than you might suspect.

You could take a stab at including your

parts amid the day

For instance, you could have:

• a glass of juice and a cut

banana with your grain at


• a side plate of mixed greens at lunch

• a pear as an evening nibble

• a part of peas or other

vegetables with your

evening mea

Browse new, solidified,

tinned, dried or squeezed, yet

keep in mind potatoes number

as a bland nourishment, not as

parts of products of the soil.

What is a portion? One portion of fruit and veg = 80g, or any of these: • 1 apple, banana, pear, orange or other similar size fruit • 2 plums or similar size fruit • ½ a grapefruit or avocado • 1 slice of large fruit, such as melon or pineapple • 3 heaped tablespoons of vegetables (raw, cooked, frozen or tinned) • 3 heaped tablespoons of fruit salad (fresh or tinned in fruit juice) or stewed fruit • 1 heaped tablespoon of dried fruit (such as raisins and apricots) • a dessert bowl of salad • a glass (150ml) of fruit juice (counts as a maximum of one portion a day) • 1 cupful of grapes, cherries or berries
