Here are some easy tips to add more fruit and veg into each meal of the day.
Breakfast: Add berries to your cereal; stewed fruit to your porridge or have a juicy tomato with your poached egg.
Lunch: Make vegetable soups; grate carrot or celeriac into hummus; chop colourful veg and mix with couscous; fill up sandwiches with salad leaves, tomatoes and cucumber.
Dinner: Add beans and pulses to stews, chilli or Bolognese sauce; serve 3 veg not 2, roast pepper, beetroot, parsnips and squash; throw a handful of frozen spinach, peas or sweetcorn into pastas and stews; eat fruit for dessert.
Snacks: prepare a tub of chopped fruit or veg each day, e.g. melon, pineapple, carrots, cucumber, celery, radish; carry a small box of dried fruit; choose fruit instead of biscuits.
