7-a-day Fruit & Veg
The WHO recommendation of 5-a-Day fruit & veg was first proposed in 1990. A recent new study from University College London has hit the headlines. The study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, reviews 12 years of data, and concludes that 7 or more helpings of fruit & vegetables per day appears to be associated with better health & longevity. There are many creative & tasty ways to incorporate more veggies into your daily meals & snacks - and this forms an integral part of the Nutritional therapy process.
