When buying tinned produce, do opt for those packed in natural juice or water, without added sugar or salt. You can also include a 30g portion of dried fruit and a 150ml portion of fruit juice or smoothies once a day, ideally eaten at mealtimes, rather than in between (to reduce the risk of tooth decay). Tinned and dried forms of fruit and vegetables are great storecupboard staples, making them especially handy if it is difficult to get to the shops.
