Dietitians Note

It is recommended to eat 2 serves of fruit everyday, so get creative and experiment with different seasonal fruits!
In case you were wondering, a serve of fruit is about the size of a clenched fist. So this would be equal to the average apple or orange, or 2 small fruits (e.g. kiwi fruit), or 1cup of chopped fruit.
