New research shows that more New Zealanders than ever are eating the recommended daily intake of fruit and vegetables.
The survey conducted in June this year found 40 percent of us are getting at least five servings of fruit and vegetables each day.
Furthermore, the 13 percent who only ate one serving in 2017 has decreased to just 9 percent of the population.
However the survey did find some other important information about our food habits.
The main one of these was that New Zealanders throw away an estimated $2.4 billion worth of food each year. Much of it fresh produce that has gone to waste.
