    Ho many portions of fruit or veg do you get on an average day? (fruit juice from the supermarket does not count, unless it's not from concentrate and not processed)

    Example of '1 portion':

    1 apple, banana, pear, orange or other similar sized fruit
    2 plums, satsumas, kiwi fruit or other similar sized fruit
    1⁄2 a grapefruit or avocado
    1 large slice of melon or fresh pineapple
    3 heaped tablespoons of vegetables, beans or pulses
    3 heaped tablespoons of fruit salad or stewed fruit
    1 heaped tablespoon of raisins or sultanas
    3 dried apricots
    1 cupful of grapes, cherries or berries
    1 dessert bowl of salad

    Really just depends, sometimes I will have a really bad day that might not have any fruit or veg :eek: But sometimes I might have like 10 so it all balances out really.

    Currently, the most I can manage is around 2 or 3. But once I go back to uni, it'll be more than 5 a day - I love me fruit! :yep:

    I think it's normally somewhere between 2 and 6. At the moment, it's on the lower end of the scale, because I'm living with my family, and there's lots of meat. When I'm at uni, I'll be back to being vegetarian 5 or 6 days out of 7, so will eat a lot more veg again.

    I probably get 3 or 4 most days.

    Most days - 4 or 5. However, some days I can get 7 or 8 - we had a soup the other day that had 5 portions of veg in it just by itself.

    Fruit juice does count - it just only counts once a day.
    And obviously if you have an orange juice and then have an orange later in the day then that will only count once too.
