Considering how cheap it is to stuff your face with junk food, compared to how expensive it can be to get your fill of good quality fruit and vegetables, it's no wonder we've got an obesity problem on our hands.

If it's a toss-up between a £34 veg selection box from the likes of Hello Fresh, or a tenner for a 16" pizza there aren't many people who would choose the former.

However, now Morrisons has jumped on the delivered veg box bandwagon it looks as if that may be about to change.

The supermarket is well-known for its cheap and reliable delivery service and now its set to add three new highly-affordable veg selection boxes to the menu.

The retailer will offer an Organic Veg Box for £8, a British Veg Box for £5 and something called a Wonky Veg Box for a mere £3.

The British Veg box is by far the cheapest of its kind on the market and includes a generous selection of seasonal vegetables, including potatoes, leeks, carrots and courgettes.

The current seasonal selection consists of: four white potatoes, four brown onions, five carrots, two courgettes, two leeks, one savoy cabbage, a cauliflower and a swede

The Wonky Veg box features a similar-sized assortment, the only difference being that some items may be slightly misshapen or come from overseas. Still, if you don't mind the occasional crooked carrot then we can't see anything wrong with that.

Customers are already leaving glowing reviews on the website. One wrote: "Brilliant little veg box, far better value than the online veg/fruit box schemes, in my opinion. Lovely fresh vegetables, just the right amount for a family of four to use in a week with nothing left over as waste. We love this box, hopefully Morrisons will keep selling it all through the year - as far as is possible - summer potatoes are awful."

The British Veg Box will be available at Morrisons branches up and down the country from the 28 of September and all veg selection boxes can be delivered to customers' homes from the 2 October.
