Brits eat most fruit and veg in Europe!

English: veggies

English: veggies (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

It’s not often that, as a nation, us Brits top the healthy eating polls! But it seems we’re much better than our European counterparts at eating our recommended 5 a day fruit and veg

 

One in five of us is eating the RDA – it’s not great, let’s be honest, so it’s even more suprising it’s the highest intake in Europe, where the average is fewer than one in 10.

 

But it’s not all great news, the consumption is lower in lower income groups, and while adults seem to be good at eating healthily we’re not encouraging our children to do the same, consumption is down for them too.

 

So come on, substitute sweets for fruit, swap a sandwich for soup, swap crisps for baked fruit pieces – it’s yummy, healthy and cheap!
