Most Australian adults would know they’re meant to eat two or more serves of fruit and five or more serves of vegetables every day. (Whether or not they get there is another question.) While a self-contained "serve" of fruit is pretty easy to work out, what about veggies?
A recent national survey reported 45% of Australian women and 56% of Australian men didn’t eat enough fruit. And 90% of women and 96% of men didn’t eat enough vegetables. This figure is worse than for the preceding ten years.
