For anyone who wants a boost to their general health. The suggested goals are:
EAT 10 PORTIONS OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES EVERY DAY - if you don't usually eat much fruit and veg I would build up gradually or you could upset your digestion.
DO (AT LEAST) 10 MINUTES OF EXERCISE EVERY DAY - can be yoga, stretching or something more energetic. The plan is that the idea of doing 10 minutes is not too daunting, and having started you may well find you want to do more.
There are no restrictions on what you eat so long as you get your 10 fruit and veg as well. The focus is not on weight loss but on improving our energy levels and hopefully our general mood and well-being. Sign up below and post here to tell us how you're getting on and how you are feeling.

I am normally very good with what I say in front of the children, but the kettle isn't boiling properly and my tea doesn't taste how it should, so I said, " This kettle is really pissing me off." And dd2 chimed in vehemently, "Yeah, me too!"
yes dd2 has a habit of going 'Oh my GOD' when things go wrong - could be worse I guess
last night I did dreadfully re f&v because I had a girl round for a playdate with dd1 who I suspect to be the daughter of a chef
I got myself into such a tizzy I ended up preparing an elaborate meal for the three of them - her and the two dds - for fear she would go home to her parents and say 'we had bought fishcakes for tea' and they would snigger about me
luckily she ate it - was v yummy - though as usual dds sat in front of it politely before we binned it
was by then too bored of cooking to make tea for me and dh so we got a chinese
we are going to see clinical psychologist on Friday re dd's food refusal and general pratting about at the dinner table so if there are any tips for reluctant eaters other than shouting and slamming cupboard doors I will pass them on
if it is heavy rain on Sunday, we will be right near both the maritime museum and the royal observatory, which are super places for children to be banished to with any dps that turn up, while we eat french pastries in the maritime museum cafe
