I don't think I do, when you say "and" that just means 5 total of those right, not 5 of each....

I get maybe 1 , 2.5 on a good day but thanks for bringing it to my attention

Just so you know, because of Fruits and greens, being harvested before they've fully matured 5 Fruits a day is no longer enough. The fruits don't contain the same ammount of vitamins anymore.

i don't. i really need to increase my fruit and veg intake.

for everyone's info:

What is a portion?

A portion is about 80g of fruit or vegetables. This is roughly equal to:

* an apple, orange, banana, or similarly-sized fruit
* two plums, nectarines or similarly-sized fruit
* a handful or grapes or berries
* a slice of melon, pineapple or large fruit
* one tablespoon of raisins or other dried fruit

Two serving spoons of broccoli counts as a portion of vegetables.
* two serving spoons of cooked vegetables, e.g. broccoli or carrots
* a dessert bowl of salad
* two serving spoons of beans and pulses (only one portion per day)
* a 150ml glass of fresh fruit juice or smoothie (only one portion per day)

Beans, pulses can only count towards one portion a day. This is because they are high in fibre but don’t contain the same balance of nutrients as other fruit and vegetables.

Fruit juice can also only count towards one portion a day. This is because they are high in nutrients but low in fibre. And extracting the juice releases sugars which are bad for your teeth.

Mushrooms can also count towards your portions. But try not to fry them in lots of oil as they will readily soak it up.

Do all fruit and vegetables count?

Dried or tinned fruit, and tinned or frozen vegetables can all count towards your daily portions. But try to eat tinned fruit kept in natural fruit juice rather than syrup. And check the salt content of tinned foods, as it can sometimes be high.

The fruit and vegetables in ready meals or takeaways can also count towards your portions. But these foods are often high in fat and added salt and sugar, so try to eat them in moderation.

Potatoes are nutritious but are classified as starchy foods, so for these purposes, don’t count towards your portions. And chips certainly don’t count either!

I get most of it through Naked Juice, cuz god knows the sh!tty hall food is as nutritious as eating cardboard.

I normally have a piece of fruit a day just for a snack and veges with dinner.

Don't know if thats "5 portions" but it sounds good enough for me.

And keeping that in mind, I eat more fruit and veg than other food types.

So mine's probably lower.

a tablespoon of each of those dried fruits, or one tablespoon of them all together?

you'd get 1 for the orange juice alone, then more depending on how much dried fruit you're eating.

I ate half a packet of starburst, does that count? :P tbh, i can't stand the way people go on about it (just like this whole carbon foot print climate change global warming bollocks). I don't actually like vegetables much, fruit's ok but i'd rather have my e numbers :P I feel fine, and im not dead yet so i dont see why you need them; after all, vegetarians live without meat and people don't complain about that much.

I sure hope veggies don't catch onto that statement.

I drink a glass of fruit juice every morning.
Have an orange or two during the day.
Have a few slices of pineapple.
Maybe have a few vegetables in a veg lunch/dinner.

Thats pretty much it.
