Crunch 'n munch for healthy lunch.

HEALTHY eating was on the menu for people visiting Bath Place Community Venture in Leamington.

Community dietician Catherine Wickens cooked up some healthy meals for the community cafe using mushrooms and tomatoes supplied by Horticultural Research International, in Wellesbourne, near Warwick.

Everybody who bought fruit and vegetables at the food co-operative was treated to a bag of tomatoes, also from HRI.

It was all part of Take 5, a campaign by South Warwickshire Dietetic Service to get people eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Dietician Ruth Breese said: "Telling people to eat more fruit and vegetables is a very positive message."

Other events include stalls at Warwick Hospital fete on Sunday, and a fruit and veg afternoon at Alcester Day Hospital on Tuesday.
