No matter what your usual intake of vegetables is now, do you think you can add one more? 

The Ministry of Health recommends we eat five servings of vegetables (or more) every day for good health. While some people do hit the mark, many don’t meet this recommendation.

With a few simple tips and tricks, more kiwis can increase their vegetable intake, by adding another handful or two every day.

Even just one more serve is a great result. Start small and build up.

If you need a reason to get one more, think about all the great benefits that come with eating more vegetables:

  • Lots of vegetables have plenty of vitamin C – great for immune health
  • Many are packed with fibre and that’s going to make your gut happy. And did you know - a happy gut can mean a happy mood too?
  • They fill us up and have lots of B vitamins, good for energy
  • Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables can even help reduce risk of coronary heart disease (remember to eat a well-balanced diet with a wide variety of wholesome foods)

And that’s not to mention how tasty, crunchy and colourful they are in your meals!

Remember to shop in season for great value freshly grown vegetables.
