What are Children's Centres?

Getting your child to eat fruit & vegetables

Getting your child to eat fruit and vegetables

To increase your child's intake of fruit and vegetables, try:

  • putting their favourite vegetables or canned pineapple on top of pizza
  • giving them carrot sticks, slices of pepper and peeled apple as snacks
  • mixing chopped or mashed vegetables with rice, mashed potatoes, meat sauces or dhal
  • chopping prunes or dried apricots into cereal or plain, unsweetened yoghurt, or adding them to a stew
  • mixing fruit (fresh, canned or stewed) with plain, unsweetened yoghurt for a tasty dessert; you could also try tinned fruit in fruit juice, such as pears and peaches, or unsweetened stewed fruit, such as apples
