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.
