World Cancer Research Fund gives further support to 5-a-day...

The World Cancer Research fund has decided to do more to support 5-a-day.  Its latest findings show that a staggering 9 out of 10 older children are missing the five a day target.  Only 8% of 11 to 18 year olds actually eat the recommended 5 portions a day.  Just 29% of adults aged 19 to 64 eat 5 portions compared with 36% of over 65s.  A study recently detailed in our blog, suggested ten portions would give even more health benefit, significantly reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer.  More and more organisations are now  looking to support the 5-a-day campaign, creating recipes specifically focussed on 5-a-day.  We are flattered Jamie Oliver is now regularly creating 5-a-day recipes, and WCRF has now launched 'Real Recipes' at www.wcrf-uk.org/realrecipes to help give us all more inspiration.
