Fruit and vegetables ‘lacking’ in UK diets
Britons are not eating enough fruit and vegetables despite nutritional advice being widely available, a study suggests.
A review of eating habits in 19 EU countries put the UK in 14th place.
The analysis was carried out by the European Food Information Council (EUFIC).
It says that on average, Britons eat 258g (9.1oz) of fruit and vegetables a day, compared with a European average of 386g (13.6oz).
