It’s National Nutrition Week this week and not only are we raising awareness about Try for 5 (getting 5 serves of veggies in per day) but this year there is also a focus on embracing your veg waste instead of throwing it out.

It’s a question I am often being asked - should we eat organic? There is a lot to consider in terms of nutritional value of organic versus conventional foods and also the effect of pesticides on human health.
