According to Nationwide research by Higgidy, it seems as a nation, we are not getting enough greens in our diet, with the average UK resident having not eaten broccoli in over one month.
Perhaps this is because broccoli features on the list of the UK’s most loathed veg, along with other greens such as Brussels sprouts, cabbage and kale. Take a look at the full list to see if your tastes are aligned with the nation’s.
