A whopping 90 per cent of us aren’t getting enough fibre, with women munching just 17g per day, of the recommended 30g.

According to Elaine Rush, a professor of nutrition at Auckland University of Technology, the following add up to one day’s worth of fibre: half a cup of rolled oats, two Weetabix, a thick slice of brown bread, a cup of cooked lentils, a potato cooked with its skin on, half a cup of chard, a carrot and an apple. You could also top up with chia seeds, which provide 10g of fibre per 30g portion – try them scattered on salads, porridge and into soups and casseroles.
