Have at least five portions of vegetables and fruit every day – choose a variety!
It is important to have at least 5 A DAY as vegetables and fruit provide a range of different vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals (e.g. polyphenols) needed for health, as well as fibre which is important for the digestive system and can help reduce the risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer. Variety is key, as each type of vegetable or fruit provides different amounts and combinations of nutrients.
