Five Servings of Fruits, Vegetables a Day Not Mandatory

It is not necessary to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables every day to keep healthy but just enough for the body to assimilate the necessary vitamins and minerals, a British dietician says.

Catherine Collins, chief dietician at St George's Hospital in Tooting, says the fruits and vegetables can be spread out across a week. One can eat a lot one day and not much the next, but over a week he or she will still get the right amount of nutrients.

"The whole idea that you must meet some vitamin and mineral targets every day of your life is a marketing myth," she said. Collins's advice flies in the face of Britain's Five A Day campaign which encourages people to eat five pieces of fruit and vegetables every day to be healthy.
