Eating Your 5 A Day Fruit And Veg

Eating your five portions of fruit and vegetables may seem like a daunting task at first but with careful planning it can be achieved so easily. After all if you miss having 5 one day that's ten pieces you have to fit in the next which may be more difficult for some.

When counting a fruit or a vegetable as a serving look at how much weight/or amount counts as one portion.

Listed below is a few simple way to insure you are getting your five a day. Without even thinking about it there is no reason why you cannot reach your daily target.


This is the most important meal of the day as t starts off your metabolic rate helping to help you stay fuller for longer and give you enough energy until lunch time.

Scrambled on a toast with a glass of fresh orange juice followed by melon would class as two of your five a day. Mango and banana smoothie topped with oats would count as two of your five a day. A fruit salad consisting of grapes, apples, banana and mango topped with fresh yogurt would count as four of your five a day.


A sandwich followed by a banana and a cup of fresh apple juice would count as two towards your five a day. A heartily mixed salad served with fresh bread would count as two toward your five a day. Carrot and celery soup served with a warm baguette would count as two toward your five a day.


A Sunday roast served with a selection of carrots, broccoli and Swede would count as three toward your five a day. Chicken and chips served with peas, would count as one of your five a day.

Potatoes do not count toward your five a day even though they are a vegetable.
