Frozen fruit and veg can spark a conversation and doubt around it's nutritional value. However, frozen varieties can actually offer many beneficial aspects over fresh fruit and veg.
•Pre-cut for convenience.
•Snap frozen soon after being picked = locking nutr
•Can be stored for prolonged periods of time = minimising food waste.
•They are generally more cost effective in comparison to fresh produce.
Where they fall short?
The taste and texture may not be quite as on par with fresh fruit and veg. However, if you don’t mind this then don’t hold back!
Alternatively, you could also work with a 1:1 ratio of fresh and frozen veg to increase the amount of veggies in a meal.
At the end of the day it’s down to what works best for you and fits in with your lifestyle.
Choose fresh, frozen or a combination of both as long as you’re meeting the daily recommendations of 2 servings of fruit and 5 servings of vegetables.
