Cut down on food waste and get your five a day? Yes you can with Princes Canned Fruit

We all know that canned fruit can be great value for money but when you take into account the amount of food waste you can cut down on by avoiding throwing out spoiled fresh fruit, the cost savings are even better.

But one of the best thing about canned fruit in juice is that it counts as one of your five-a-day so it’s the ideal solution for keeping your family healthy while not breaking the bank – and cutting down on food waste.

Getting your family to consume their five-a-day can sometimes be a challenge, but using canned fruit in juice can count towards this recommended daily intake and comes without the fuss of preparing from fresh. And with the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey showing that just 27% of adults are managing to eat their recommended five-a-day1, finding easy ways of eating well on a budget is important for our family’s health.
