Everyone knows we should all be aiming to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables each day, chosen from a mixture of fresh, frozen, tinned, dried or juiced. Here at Peter’s Produce we can really help you with those fresh portions.
Apples, Pear, Bananas and similar sized fruit
1 fruit = 1 portion. How about an apple for your morning snack or a sliced banana in a sandwich for lunch?
Plums and similar size fruit
2 fruits = 1 portion. Try some juicy fresh plums as an easy mid-week desert.
Grapefruit and Avocado
½ fruit = 1 portion. Grapefruit is great as part of your breakfast or try stuffed avocado as a dinner party starter.
Large Fruit, eg Pineapple and Melon
1 slice = 1 portion. Melon is versatile and can be used as a starter or desert, or try cubes of pineapple on a pizza.
3 heaped tablespoons = 1 portion. Serve a couple of different vegetable with dinner and those 5 a day portions will soon add up.
3 heaped tablespoons = 1 portion. Choose your favourite fruits and make your own fruit salad for a simple pudding.
Grapes, Cherries and Berries
1 handful = 1 portion. Great for luchboxes or maybe just to keep the afternoon nibbles at bay.
1 desert bowl = 1 portion. Serve instead of vegetables with your main meal or great with a barbecue.
150ml glass = 1 portion. Whether freshly juiced yourself or drunk from a carton, fruit juice only counts for 1 portion each day.
Dried fruit, eg Raisins and Apricots
1 heaped tablespoon = 1 portion. Try sprinkling raisins over your breakfast cereal and great for lunchboxes, too.
