Five-a-day - there’s an iPhone app for it

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

I AM writ­ing to let your read­ers know about our brand new iPhone ap­pli­ca­tion, the Wheel of Por­tion.

To cel­e­brate our Fruity Fri­day cam­paign we at World Can­cer Re­search Fund (WCRF) have cre­ated an iPhone app with a Wheel of For­tune-style spin­ning wheel that mea­sures the por­tion size of dif­fer­ent fruits and veg­eta­bles.

The app is the ul­ti­mate pocket re­source to help you get your five a day even when you are on the go.

The app also in­cludes prepa­ra­tion guides, nu­tri­tional in­for­ma­tion, ac­cess to 60 tasty, healthy recipes and a BMI checker to mea­sure body fat.

Sci­en­tists es­ti­mate that a third of the most com­mon can­cers could be pre­vented by fol­low­ing a healthy diet, which in­cludes at least five por­tions of fruits and veg­eta­bles a day, be­ing phys­i­cally ac­tive and main­tain­ing a healthy weight.

The app is avail­able from the iTunes store for £1.19, which in­cludes a do­na­tion to WCRF. We have 25 apps to give­away to the first 25 read­ers who call 0207 343 4205 and quote ‘me­dia’. For more in­for­ma­tion about the WCRF app, visit www.wcr­fuk.org/wheel TERESA NIGHTIN­GALE
