Seven portions of fruit and veg not possible for poor

We hear that, if we eat seven portions of fruit and veg a day, we will live longer. Well, I'm afraid that all but the wealthy are going to die before their time.

Anyone who actually goes shopping will realise that five-a-day for a family of four for seven days will cost more than their budget for an entire week's groceries. We are now seeing fruit sold at prices per item, instead of per weight.

They should think before making silly recommendations that are beyond so many people's reach.
