UK: Fruit and veg consumption still not reaching five-a-day target
Many people in Britain are still not eating enough fruit and vegetables, with the national average fruit and vegetable consumption currently at less than 3 portions per day. The UK Food Standards Agency recommends that people eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables per day, but the National Diet and Nutrition Survey has revealed that on average men eat 2.7 portions per day and women eat 2.9 portions per day. Only 13% of men and 15% of women are eating five or more portions of fruit and vegetables per day.
