    Hi all
    As the title says, I really am not a fan of fruit, maybe strawberries or the odd satsuma but other than that I'm just not a fan.
    Do you think this will pose any problems?
    I love my veg though so always try and fill half the plate with this.
    Is eating fruit really essential in life? lol
    thnx x

    I think that as long as you are eating plenty of vegetables instead you should be fine.

    The superfree requirement covers fruit and/or vegetables. If you are eating loads of vegetables, then you don't have to force yourself to eat fruit if you don't like it.

    you should aim for your five a day anyway, so if you are having veg x 5 portions that will be fine. However to give yourself some variety then try and incorporate the fruits that you do like - and you could buy frozen strawberries and frozen raspberries etc so they'll save in the freezer for when you do eat them.

    Frozen fruit? really? wicked!
    Handy for me as I have a habit of buying things then not fancying them.

    yep i use frozen fruit a lot atm for price as they are out of season and expensive and for convenience!
    the only thing i have to say is i find them quite squishy and also bitter so i cant eat them on their own as i would the fresh fruits so i eat them with yogurt.
    i get raspberries,mixed berries and strawberries.
