Do fruit pastilles count as a portion of fruit?

11% of 11-16 year olds think that fruit pastilles count as part of their 5-a-day for fruit and veg..! 
Eat fact not fiction is the theme for this weeks Dietitians Week. It’s also the British Nutrition Foundation’s (BNF) Healthy Eating Week and they’ve just released the details of a recent survey asking school children about where food comes for. It’s an interesting’ (or more accurately worrying) read. 
More like ham a quarter also thought that strawberry jam counted as a portion of fruit and veg 😬
I’ll pop up a blog soon with portion sizes for you. 
To get evidence based advice and information on nutrition speak to a dietitian. To use the title Dietitian you have to be a registered member of the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). A few Nutritionists are also registered to prove that they are adequately trained and knowledgeable about nutrition to give advice, but beware anyone can use the title Nutritionist and the information does not need to be based on an once of science which can be dangerous.
