Happy Veg

Recently I was asked if I would like to try out a range of vegetables that are pesticide residue free. There is a lot of debate about whether pesticides should be used or not, their use enables farmers to grow good quality plentiful crops without the risk of losing a whole crop to a pest or two but on the other hand, long term exposure to pesticides can cause health risks and harm to the Environment.


Good Natured is a range of fruit and vegetables that are 'Lovingly raised in tune with Mother Nature' and it doesn't just stop at the veg, even the packaging is environmentally sustainable, being home compostable and recyclable. The Good Natured Carrot packaging may look like normal plastic but it is actually made from vegetable starch and is biodegradable and fully compostable.

The baby plum tomatoes and cucumber that I tried were, I can honestly say, a lot tastier than the salad vegetables that we normally have and I was pleasantly surprised that they weren't a lot more expensive either. They quickly got polished off by my hungry lot alongside pizza one Friday evening. The carrots lasted a bit longer, eaten raw with salad as well as being sliced up in a stew and then the last lonely carrot was added to one of the Harvest Festival Gift Baskets (can you see it nestled amongst the chocolate, tea, biscuits and Malteser hot chocolate - lucky carrot!).

Good natured vegetables are available from Asda, ranging from 85p for a bag of carrots up to £1.67 for a pair of gigantic peppers.


I was provided with an Asda voucher to enable me to buy some Good Natured vegetables for the purpose of this review.
