If it sounds too good to be true – it probably isn’t! If someone tries to sell you something that resembles a lolly, drink or other processed food and claims that this will improve your health almost as much as eating fresh fruit and vegetables, ignore them and head straight to the fresh fruit and veg market, or even better, the nearest community garden.
