A balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables will help keep you healthy and reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke and some cancers.
Why not start by making sure you have the recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables every day?
Fruit and veg are packed with vitamins and minerals, give you plenty of the fibre and antioxidants your body needs, and taste great too!
For more information about getting your 5 fruit and vegetables a day, including simple recipes, go to the 5 A DAY website.
You can also get lots of information about how to eat healthily and well from NHS choices.
