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.
9. Broccoli - 9%
Experts claim that eating a diet rich in leafy greens such as broccoli can reduce risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and mental decline. However that’s still not enough to win over nine per cent of respondents.
10. Yam - 9%
This starchy edible root of the Dioscorea genus, is native to Africa and Asia, with the majority of imports coming from Africa.
11. Fennel - 9%
This hardy, perennial herb is indigenous to the shores of the Mediterranean. Nine per cent of those surveyed said it was their least favourite vegetable.
12. Okra - 8%
Okra, otherwise known as ‘lady's fingers’ also made the list, with eight per cent admitting to disliking the veg.
