Fruit and veg

Most people will have seen the media attention given to children's databases during the last few days. One thing that cropped up repeatedly was the mention of the target of ensuring children ate 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day.

The full Public Service Agreement (PSA) targets (including the fruit and veg measure) for local authorities can be seen in the DfES' outcomes and indicators document.
