Public Health Wales advise freshly prepared meals to combat obesity in ABM region
PREPARING meals yourself from fresh fruit and vegetables is the best way for peace of mind for consumers.
The advice from Public Health Wales follows a Welsh health survey from 2011 which suggests only 33 per cent of adults in the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board area are eating their recommended guideline amount of five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
It also indicated 59 per cent of adults in the region were overweight or obese.

Executive director of public health for Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, Dr Sara Hayes, said: "We know that people are busy, but we can all get more enjoyment out of life and stay healthy by taking the time to sit down as a family or with friends to enjoy freshly prepared meals.
"Buying from local producers helps the local economy and gives consumers added peace of mind."
