7 out of 10 adults admit that they do not get their recommended five a day of fruit and vegetables. As guidelines now suggest that we should in fact be consuming not five, but seven portions daily, adults are slipping further and further behind in their pursuit of a healthy diet. V8 V-Fusion is an exciting new drink that combines 100% fruit and vegetable juices in delicious combinations, meaning that one 250 ml glass gives you two of your five a day in one go. It's a wholesome way to kick start your day and is a delicious alternative to ordinary fruit juices.
We tried the new Raspberry and Beetroot juice. It was thick and perfectly sweetened by the raspberries but with an underlying earthiness from the beetroot. It tasted wholesome and natural. It is free from artificial additives and the ingredients list was made up purely of fruit and vegetables including sweet potato, carrot, apple, beetroot, raspberry and blackcurrant.
It's such a simple way to incorporate extra fruit and veg into your diet. There is also a Passion Fruit, Mango and Carrot flavour available to buy in Tesco and Waitrose RRP. £1.89.

Lurpak Cook's Range Cooking Mist
Lurpak has a new range of cooking products designed to inspire food adventures in the kitchen. Featuring clarified butter, cooking liquid, cooking mist and baking butter, each product includes real Lurpak Butter presented in a way to make cooking easier and give end results a professional finish.
I tried out the Lurpak Cooks' Range Cooking Mist which retails at £2.70 for a 200 ml spray can. It combines a liquid blend of Lurpak Butter with rapeseed oil to create a sprayable mist for basting or greasing. It can even be used to glaze pies.
The bottle itself looks classy and professional. The spray top was easy to use, spraying a fine mist straight onto the food. I was impressed with the way it dispensed and the coverage each spray gave. I tried it out on home made chunky chips and roasted root vegetables. It did a great job and the golden brown, crisp, glazed finish was impressive.
