Are we eating veg again?
On a more positive note, the Health Survey also revealed new figures for fruit and veg consumption in Scotland, which showed the highest reported intake since 2003. The improvement is small (from 20% of adults eating 5-a-day last year to 24% this year, and 3 portions per day average to 3.3 portions), but encouraging. Talking of vegetables, we will be unveiling pledges by Scottish businesses for how they will make it easier for their customers to eat more veg at the second Vegetable Summit next week in London!
