Smart swaps: Fibre

With its ability to reduce cholesterol, help blood sugar control, fill you up for longer and keep you regular, fibre is the original super nutrient. Women need to aim for at least 25g of fibre and men, 30g daily. But, in reality, most adult Kiwi women eat only 17g a day and men only 22g. Try these smart swaps to help boost your fibre every day.
