Eat in Colour A-Z


  • New potatoes and cold spuds (think potato salad) provide a slower release of energy than hot potatoes. It’s all to do with changes back to starch from sugar when the potato cools – useful info for slimmers and sports men and women
  • Eating the skin on fruit and vegetables increases your fibre intake and your vitamin and mineral intake because much is contained in and just below the skin. But don’t go mad and try to eat pineapple or pomegranate skins
  • Peas contain more protein than most other vegetables including baked beans
  • Vitamin K, found in green leafy vegetables, helps prevent calcium loss from bones
  • Drinking orange juice, or eating citrus and other good sources of vitamin C, helps the body absorb iron from fruit and vegetables – good news for vegetarians
  • A glass of fruit juice or a smoothie counts as one of your 5-a-day portions of fruit and vegetables. But only the first one counts because the total of 5 needs to be made up of different items, each contributing its own different set of nutrients to your diet
