3/4? Really should start doing more salads at lunch.


#3

have at least 3 pieces of fruit at lunch, probably another after dinner and usually 2/3 veg at dinner.

Sometimes tonnes, sometimes none. During periods of ‘none’ I sometimes wonder how I don’t die


#5

Depends


#6

probably 1-2 most days :confused: sometimes more but i never keep it up


#7

Either none or loads, no imbetweens


#8

Is potato being counted? And someone up there mentioned fruit – is fruit being counted too?

Can we get some clarification on these points? Can’t answer until I know what we’re talking about.


#9

Potato is a vegetable so yes, especially if fried because oil is also a vegetable


#10

Hi Robbi,

In the UK the arbitrary five a day refers to five different servings of fruit and/or vegetables. We are aware that the number is higher in your fine land.

Hope you are having a nice evening,
