5-a-day veg and fruit, too pricy

The new head of Britain’s 50,000 family doctors says the “five-a-day” target for fruit and vegetable consumption should be revised because it is unaffordable for many Britons.

The chair of the Royal College of GPs, Dr Helen Stokes-Lampard told the Observer: “For people that have got a low-income five-a-day is really, really hard. It’s expensive to have five-a-day. I get my five-a-day, no problem, but for many people they can’t afford that five-a-day.”
