Shop seasonal in Redditch or go for tinned to avoid vegetable shortage

Redditch Editorial 6th Feb, 2017 Updated: 8th Feb, 2017

WITH vegetables like iceberg lettuce and broccoli being rationed in some supermarkets across the UK, people are being advised to be more creative with their cooking.

Weight Watchers Programme Development Manager Julia Westgarth has come up with some alternative ways to get your five a day – looking for tinned and frozen veg or simply buying seasonally.

She said: “Tinned and frozen vegetables are as good for you as fresh so stock up your cupboards and freezers and you’ll never be without.

“Try using vegetables which aren’t in short supply too – parsnips are a source of potassium which is required for controlling the balance of fluids in the body and healthy heart function, and tomatoes – whether tinned or fresh – contain loads of vitamin A, great for keeping your eyesight healthy.

” Eating seasonal British-grown veg doesn’t have to be expensive so pop along to your market and greengrocer and support local businesses.”
