 Study Finds 'Five a Day' Policy Not Being Widely Adopted
New research has indicated that a majority of the people in Britain are not eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

The study by global market insight group TNS found that just 12% manage the five-a-day target, while another 12% do not eat any portions of fruit and vegetables at all. There were significant differences based on gender and age as well.

The study of the consumer habits also found rising levels of obesity with clothes sold of size 18 or more increasing by 35% in the last two years.

The TNS report found that healthy eating habits were beginning to take effect with more people following health diets as compared to two years ago.
