Getting in your daily dose of vegetables can help you to maintain a good nutrient intake.

Instead of taking supplements, try to get in a good daily dose of nutrients from fresh vegetables where possible.

Here are some useful ideas on how to keep up with this.

Start your very own garden

Starting your own vegetable garden can keep you in a consistent supply of fresh vegetables. Consider planting a small variety of your favourite vegetables. Remember that growing a vegetable garden will take time and different vegetables may grow at different speeds. Seek advice from your local nursery if necessary.

In the meantime, you can opt to choose to consume fresh, locally grown food. Keep a lookout at your local market and enjoy making a selection from the fresh vegetables that are available to you!
