5-a-day week meal planner: How to get your 5-a-day in breakfast, lunch and dinner

Trying to get your family eating healthy everyday can be tough, especially when it comes to feeding them their recommended 5-a-day. Our week meal planner is here to inspire you and to make counting your 5-a-day a little easier.

Trying to get your family eating healthy everyday can be tough, especially when it comes to feeding them their recommended 5 a day portions (opens in new tab). We challenged our mummy blogger Anneliese to feed her family of 4 their 5-a-day everyday (opens in new tab) for one month.

From breakfast to dinner, from snacks to lunch, Anneliese completed her challenge with success! She learnt a lot of tricks on her 30 days of counting every fruit and vegetable that passed her family's lips, one of which was to plan her meals ahead.

Our week meal planner is here to inspire you, to make counting your 5-a-day a little easier and show you an insight into the types of meals Anneliese was making for her family during her challenge.
