Why Are We Getting Sick?
The Heart Foundation says we need to eat 10+ servings of fruit and veg every day to stay healthy.
10+ a day
of fruit and veg
The study was an analysis of all worldwide research currently available, involving 2 million people. The results reveal that eating up to 800g fruit and vegetables a day – or 10 servings – is associated with incredible health improvements.
It estimates that approximately 7.8 million premature deaths worldwide could be potentially prevented every year if people ate 10 helpings, or 800 g, of fruit and vegetables a day.
How many serves
do New Zealanders currently eat?
The Ministry of Health recommends that New Zealand adults eat at least three servings of vegetables and two servings of fruit each day.
Sadly, many New Zealanders fall well short of this mark. The latest estimates from the 2015/2016 health survey indicate that:
- Only 62% of adults eat the recommended three or more serves of vegetables a day
- Only 55% meet the recommend two serves of fruit a day
- When the two recommendations are put together, only 40% of New Zealand adults eat the recommended 5 + a day
We’re in the
on our greens!
The Heart Foundation Research reveals only 40% of us are consuming 5+ A Day of Fruit and Veg, not even half of the recommended 10+ A Day for good health.
