Our friends at Food For Health have sent us their favourite fruit and veg and why...
APPLES: Apples are the perfect on the go fruit, easy to pop in your bag for a quick snack. But did you know they also provide necessary vitamins including: Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Folate (folic acid).
CABBAGE: Did you know cabbage only has 25 calories per 100 grams?? Plus its high in Vitamin K, helping build strong bones!
SWEET POTATOES: Sweet potatoes are higher in fibre and lower in calories and carbohydrates than regular potatoes. Swap them in for your potatoes and try sweet potato mash or wedges one night now that they are back in season!
