Want to make sure you get 5-a-day? Dips like guacamole, houmous and salsa can help to boost your intake of vegetables. A 200g pot of guacamole usually provides at least one of your 5-a-day, thanks to the avocado it contains. Similarly, a 200g pot of houmous contains enough chickpeas to provide one of your 5-a-day. But fresh salsa, which is packed with tomatoes and onions, is a true winner. A 200g pot usually supplies two of your 5-a-day.
