“Eat More Fruit & Veg 10”

This is a continuation of the fruit and veg theme (click on the “EMFV” in the TAG CLOUD for the other posts).

Three heaped tablespoons of peas counts as one healthy portion, and they can accompany just about any cooked meal.

However, using the tablespoon to eat them is definitely not the thing to do.   It is an art in itself to collect them with a knife and fork and lift them to your mouth without too many dropping off.    Spearing them with your fork is also not allowed.


The etiquette of eating peas probably explains why children don’t include them in their list of favourite foods.  Potentially resulting in increased health impairment for the rest of your life.
