Chips not part of 5-a-day31st January 2008
A study has revealed that millions of British people are counting starchy chips and roast potatoes as part of their five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
The Health Food Manufacturers’ Association (HFMA) research estimates two thirds of Britons are unaware that potatoes do not count towards the five-a-day intake but continue to eat potatoes rather than healthy greens. Some 3,300 people were surveyed but two-thirds said they were confused by advice on health and nutrition and that led to many ignoring healthy guidelines.
