What is 5-A-Day?

5-A-Day is all about consuming 5 portions of fruit or veg a day.  We might  ask why just 5 ? 5 is the recommended  number but you can eat as much as you want. They have arrived at this number so that atleast we get different types of vitamins for our everyday nutritional needs. Here in the UK most of the fruits and vegetables sold in the shops contains information about how much is 1 portion in the packaging. Fresh , frozen ,tinned all counts. Even juice is counted as long as it contains more fruit content.Potato is an exception as it is considered for the carbohydrate intake. Consuming 5-A-Day helps  to stay fit and healthy in the long run.
