Despite the health benefits of opting for fruits and vegetables, many Kiwis still opt for less nutritious, processed - but cheaper - foods when doing their weekly grocery shop.
Kiwis are recommended to eat three servings of vegetables and two servings of fruit per day - but which ones offer the most health benefits for the cost?
We've created a video detailing the top 5 healthiest foods according to Goodnet.org. Aim to include these on your next shopping list for a good dose of vitamins and minerals.
The Ministry of Health recommends that when grocery shopping, try to choose foods/drinks with unsaturated fats (think: seeds, nuts, avocados) rather than saturated (butter, cheese, animal fats).
They also suggest choosing foods that are low in salt, have little to no added sugar and are 'whole' rather than processed.
