Join FoodWise Leeds and eat Just One More



Join the Just One more Campaign and eat just one more for your health and the planet

FoodWise Leeds are asking communities across Leeds to join then to eat 'Just One More' portion of vegetables every day for your health and for the planet.


WHY JOIN THE CAMPAIGN?


Almost half of the adults in Leeds eat fewer than five portions of fruit or vegetables per day. When good food is hard to afford and access, our health and wellbeing suffers. By helping more people in Leeds to eat a healthy, nutritious diet that aligns with the NHS recommended EatWell guidelines, we can save lives and improve quality of life for thousands of people. And because diets that are good for us tend to be better for the planet too, doing so will accelerate our journey to become a net zero city.


HOW TO GET INVOLVED.


There’s still time to get involved. You can go to our campaign resources on the FoodWise Leeds website and share them with others. You can start up a conversation about eating more veg with work colleagues, friends and family. You can share what’s on your plate on social media tagging @FoodWiseLeeds or @ZestLeeds


The campaign resources provides ideas to help you, your friends, work colleagues and family to eat more veg. Here are a few ideas about what to share:


  • Share the positive impact eating veg has on your health.

  • Share the positive impact eating more veg has on the planet

  • Share ideas and schemes that bridge the gap and lower the cost as we are very aware that many families are struggling to afford high quality food ( especially veg) at affordable prices.

  • Share a picture of the veg you are eating, or your favourite healthy recipes

  • Plant just one more for the planet.


NEED MORE PERSUASION?


Studies have shown that increasing vegetable consumption can lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Vegetables are rich in essential nutrients, fibre, and antioxidants that support overall health and immune function. More veggies in your diet has also been linked to improved mood, and performance at work and whilst learning.


Plus choosing locally sourced and/or organic vegetables has a positive impact on the environment by lowering carbon emissions and supporting the local economy.

Campaign runs until the end of June 2024.
