Veg Out 5 a Day

Veg out 5 a day

We've known it all along; fruit and vegetables are good for you. They are full of nutritious stuff that your body needs to keep you in tip-top form for all your world changing activities. Nutritious stuff that includes powerful antioxidants that protect your body from harmful free radicals.

"Five a day" that's what they say, when they are not saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". Make an apple one of your five to keep all the slogan sayers happy.
