HOW good are you at getting your five-a-day?
Well, you may need to up your game, as new book Ten-A-Day The Easy Way, by James Wong, suggests we should be eating double the recommended amount of fruit and veg.
Getty – Contributor Tuck into your five-a-day of fruit and veg for less with these fab savings
These fab savings will help get those greens in without breaking the bank.
Go bananas: Children pestering you for expensive snacks while out and about? Check out if there is a Tesco or a Morrisons nearby — both dish out free fruit for children.
SAVING: Around £1 to £2 on snacks
Super stuff: Try Aldi’s Super Six deals, where every week six items go on offer at even lower prices. This week you can pick up a pack of five limes for 69p, under 14p per lime. Sainsbury’s has £1.50 for a pack of five — 30p a lime.
SAVING: 81p per pack of five, or 16p per lime
Shape up: Swap “regular” fruit and veg for Morrisons’ Wonky range, which taste the same but just look a little bit different. For example, 1kg of regular onions is 65p and 1kg of wonky onions is on offer for 50p.
In the box: I love a free trial and myfarmfreshbox.co.uk is offering a free fruit and veg box when you sign up to its weekly delivery service. It’s a mini version of its smallest box, normally £9.50. Members rave about the better quality but be aware this is a subscription service and you will be charged £5 membership and then the price per weekly box if you continue.
SAVE: Around £5 with a free mini trial box
Waste race: Apps such as Too Good To Go and Olio can help you find food freebies or bargains in your area. Olio lets users or shops list leftovers, while Too Good To Go features shops selling leftovers for bargain prices, usually in a “magic bag” for £3 to £4.
SAVE: The cost of your weekly fruit and veg bill
