You can stack the odds in your favour just by eating fruit and vegetables because the research tells us is that eating 5+ a DAY  will reduce your risk of some cancers, great.  To make it simple go for 3 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit.

But many of us struggle to get all the servings in each day so EatSmart is here to show you simple tricks and tips for slipping fruit and vegetables in your day. And sometimes, you won't even notice!

Try these...

Good Start: Add slices of tomato to every sandwich


OK: Add a simple salad of lettuce, tomatoes and carrots to your dinner


Better: Take an apple, a carrot, sliced capsicum and a banana for lunch


Best: Add fruit on your breakfast, take a fruit filled lunch and add a salad to your dinner


Fantastic: fruit on your breakfast, fruit filled lunch + wholemeal bread, brown rice and a load of stir fry vegetables with an extra salad for dinner. Now you're really stacking the odds in your favour!
