A minimum of 400g a day of fruit and vegetables can lower the risk of serious health problems, yet currently, only 17% of Brits are achieving their 5-a-day. It’s important to eat lots of fruit and veg from across the colour spectrum – think about ‘eating a rainbow’ because different colours represent a wide variety of nutrients. To make it easier, 400g can be made up of five servings of the following:

  • 80g fresh fruit/veg
  • 80g tinned fruit/veg (in water or juice, not syrups or added salt)
  • 30g dried fruit
  • 150ml juice or smoothie
