Veg Out with 5 a Day

Level 1: #Five
1

Eat #five portions of fruit or veg a day. It's as simple as that!

We've known it all along; fruit and vegetables are good for you. They are full of nutritious stuff that your body needs to keep you in tip-top form for all your world changing activities. Make sure you eat enough.

By the way if you were in France you'd be told to get 10 portions of fruit or veg daily and in Australia is It's 5 veg and 2 fruit. Lets just say that 5 is a minimum amount.

You've got this!

Level 2: #Five #Organic
2

Eat #five portions of #organic fruit or veg a day.

A little trickier than eating any old fruit and veg but so much better for you, the #bees and the environment.

Wondering what organic product to prioritise? Well, the Pesticide Action Network has done some research on that. They found the produce with the most pesticide residues. The "Dirty Dozen" are; Grapefruits, Oranges, Lemons & Limes, Strawberries, Pears, Grapes, Cherries, Peaches, Parsnips, Asparagus, Apples and Apricots. Perhaps prioritise those?*

Level 3: #Five #Organic and #Local or #Fairtrade
3

Eat #five portions of #organic fruit or veg a day that are also #local or #fairtrade.

This is a pretty worldchanging feat in anyone's books. Can you do it? Why not give it a try?

As with all the quests photos, photos, photos. Be the change. Remember to tag us on your favourite social media channel. We'd love to find out how you get on.

Don't worry if you don't achieve this straight away or even every day. Small steps are the way to go.

The work that the Pesticide Action Network did on pesticides still on fruit and veg when you buy them at the shops was also featured on the BBC's "The Honest Supermarket". They also found the "Clean Fifteen", but note the list means just the least amount of pesticide residue not necessarily zero reside ...
Very good question! The simplest way to describe it is the amount of fruit or vegetables that would fit into your cupped hand.
Watch out for vegetables (or fruits) that are so processed with fats, salts, sugars that they are no longer healthy. We're thinking (sorry in advance for this ...) chips, crisps, carrot cake, blueberry muffins - you get the idea. The good news is that frozen fresh vegetables and fruits count (but not banoffee pie or strawberry ice-cream or anything else full of the wrong kind of calories.
