Consumers need health information which is clear and unambiguous.
Advice to « eat more fruit and vegetables » gives consumers no guidance on the quantities involved.
Popular advice is to eat « five portions a day. » This paper provides a rationale for determining which foods are included within this advice-for example, processed foods such as baked beans are but potatoes and nuts should not be.
It also describes how much of the most commonly consumed fruit and vegetables constitutes a « portion. » A bowlful of salad, for example, is needed to make up a portion but an apple or banana on its own will count.
