The Five-a-Day campaign: how nurses can promote healthier diets.

Abstract

Nurses in both primary and secondary care have a crucial role in encouraging patients to eat more healthily; in particular, by promoting the benefits of eating at least five portions of fruit and vegetables--or just 400 g--a day. This has been shown to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and the incidence of the more common cancers prevalent in the UK.
