Only a fifth eat enough fruit and vegetables
Monday 14 May 2012
Just 22 per cent of people manage to eat the recommended five-a-day portions of fruit and vegetables, new research suggests.
Only 17 per cent of people in low-income homes eat the suggested amount versus 27 per cent in higher income groups, according to the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) poll.
WCRF head of education Kate Mendoza said: "Getting at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day is the building block of a healthy diet. A diet based on plant foods, such as whole grains and pulses as well as fruit and vegetables, can reduce cancer risk."
