Eating fruits and veggies is a great way to increase fibre intake each and every day – how?

  • Keep the peels on your apples
  • Add a fruit to your breakfast to start the day off well
  • Smoothies are a great way to get your fruit (and veggies) in. And unlike juicing, the fibre content isn’t lost

  • Add veggies to soups and stews
