This week is National Nutrition Week, providing a time to reflect on our own nutrition and consider if we are achieving balance and meeting our needs for optimal health and performance. The focus for this year’s Nutrition week is “Get more veg in your life”.

Take the challenge of eating 5 vegetables every day this Nutrition Week and then see if you can extend it beyond the week. It could be as simple as adding an extra cup of vegetables at dinner, trying a new veggie or new recipe and/or snacking on vegetables between your meals.
