5 a day
Fruit and vegetables are part of a balanced diet and can help us stay healthy. That’s why it is so important that we get enough of them. 5 A DAY highlights the health benefits of getting five 80g portions of fruit and vegetables every day. That’s five portions of fruit and veg altogether, not five portions of each.
It is well documented that fruits and vegetables are good for your health and wellbeing. They are a great source of Minerals, Vitamins and antioxidants. Consuming 5 of these a day is recommended by the UK Government. 5 Fruits or vegetables a day make up part of a balanced diet. A bad diet has been linked to issues such as obesity, high blood pressure and often heart disease. Our drinks contribute to 1 of your 5 a day. Drinking our freshly squeezed juices with a meal is a convenient way of getting one of your five a day.
There is another really simple way to feel healthy… stay hydrated. So many of us do not drink enough during the hotter summer months. More than 75% of us are dehydrated.
