Blokes just won’t eat their vegetables according to the latest national health survey.
The proportion of men eating enough vegetables, already lower than for women, declined by 7.3 percentage points, to 56 per cent, from the last survey in 2002/3.
A mate who doesn’t eat vegetables reckons he doesn’t need to because he gets his greens second hand: lambs eat grass and then he eats the lamb.
He’s in marketing and was giving away lamb samples at a US supermarket. He offered a taste to a customer who turned it down because she was a vegetarian. My mate replied, “That’s okay, so was the lamb.”
