It's Fibre February!

In the UK, no age group is currently consuming the recommended amount of dietary fibre (on average), and in the vast majority of each age group, intakes are well below daily recommendations (15g/day 2-3 years, 20g/day 4-10 years, 25g/day 11-18 years, and 30g/day 19 years+). When you focus on school pupils, only 14% of 4-10 year olds and 4% of 11-18 year olds are eating the recommended amount of fibre – so there’s definitely room for improvement.   To find out more please visit
