Getting my son to consistently eat five a day has been a chore but we may be getting there. Of course the task would have been much easier if cocoa beans were considered a vegetable. I came across a different take on this theme the other day on a poster on Torquay seafront. It urged people to pick up five pieces of rubbish a day. What a great idea!
I'd just picked a rogue crisp packet out of a hedge when I spied it. 'I knew you'd do that Mum.' said Louis who'd also spotted the offending article. One day he might get over the embarrassment of the grubbing around that goes with litter picking. I can see how it might defy teenage cool. So as long as he's not dropping his wrappers himself I'll let Louis off trash collecting duties for the time-being! This particular version of five a day might predominantly be for grown ups only.
