Both men and women should be eating 30g of fibre a day

This mean that, on average, men need to increase their consumption by 50% and women by a staggering 75%.

Fibre can be found in foods such as cereal and grains, particularly wholegrains; and a vast array of fruit and vegetables. For more information on consuming a healthy balanced diet see information from Public Health England on the eatwell guide.
