Teen diet worries

22nd July 2011

New government data has found that just one in 13 teenage girls are getting their recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day and for boys aged 11 to 18, only one in eight are eating the right amount.

The National Diet and Nutrition Survey found that adults ate more on average, with a third getting their five-a-day. The findings come from a poll of more than 2,000 adults and children, which also raised concerns about other areas of diet such as consumption of saturated fats.
