Aldi, Asda, Waitrose, Co-op, Lidl, Sains­bury’s and Tesco are all work­ing to­gether as part of the Peas Please scheme to get us eat­ing our greens.

Did you know the UK ranks eighth worst in Europe for eat­ing veg­eta­bles? Or that 95% of our teenagers don’t eat enough veg?

Peas Please aims to change all that and is bring­ing to­gether busi­nesses and brands to help. It’s hoped that by join­ing forces, su­per­mar­kets, schools and shops will be

able to of­fer more veg­eta­bles at bet­ter prices and bet­ter qual­ity.

The seven su­per­mar­kets listed have also promised to de­velop and pro­mote more veg­etable prod­ucts and make sure veg­eta­bles are in the best places in their stores.

It’s be­lieved that 20,000 deaths a year could be pre­vented by in­creas­ing our veg­etable and pulses (beans, lentils etc) con­sump­tion. So, what are we wait­ing for? Let’s get munch­ing those great greens!

Get in my belly!
