What is 5-a-day?
The concept of 5 A Day is based on the government’s recommendation of eating 5 variants of fruit and vegetables a day in order to live and maintain a healthy lifestyle leading to all round benefits. Fruit and vegetables are part of a balanced diet and can help us stay healthy. That’s why it so important that we get enough of them. 5 A DAY is based on advice from the World Health Organisation, which recommends eating a minimum of 400g of fruit and vegetables a day to lower the risk of serious health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Taking all of this into consideration, teamed with the government recommendation that cchildren under five who can walk unaided should be physically active every day for at least 180 minutes (three hours), spread throughout the day, indoors or out, the 5 A Day product and resource range was developed.
