DAY 7: Snack on fruit today
To get a more fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants into your diet, we should all be eating at least 2 servings of fruit each day. What does one serving look like? It could be one medium-sized fruit, two clementines, one cup of cut up fruit/berries or ¼ cup dried fruit or ½ cup-100 per-cent fruit juice.
To help you meet your minimum target, snack on fruit (whole fruit, not juice) midmorning and afternoon.
Missed earlier days? It's easy to get caught up.
