General dietary tips

According to the NHS, fruit and vegetables are a good source of vitamins and minerals and fibre, and should make up just over a third of the food you eat each day.

“It’s recommended that you eat at least five portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day,” advises the health body.

They can be fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced, it adds.

Why five portions?

There’s evidence that people who eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and some cancers.
