GETTING YOUR FRUITS & VEGGIES AT THE OFFICE:

It isn't always easy eating lots of fruits and vegetables,
particularly when you have a busy lifestyle so here are some
tips to help you:

Snacking:
Fill bowls with easy-eating fruits such as grapes, soft citrus
and cherries for something to nibble on.

Lunch-Box:
Fill sandwiches with unusual salad items such as chicory,
avocado, celery and roasted peppers. Accompany with a selection
of fresh fruits ranging from the traditional to the exotic.

Lunch Out:
Choose pasta with vegetables. Accompany with salads and go for
fruity puddings or cheese and fruit.
