Summer calls for fruit salad and frozen yoghurt…
Dietary guidelines recommend eating a variety of fruit every day.Here are some easy tips to help you encourage fruit consumption with your children.
Add fruit to meals you already prepare
Kids in the kitchen
Try and get your children involved in preparation as much as possible. This builds their interest and encourages them to try new things.
Encourage variety and buy in season
Different fruit can help protect the body in different ways, so it’s important to choose a variety of colours every day:
Grow your own
Children enjoy digging and watching things grow. Gardening can help foster a child’s interest in nutrition and nature and develop skills such as responsibility.
Be a role model
Regularly eat and enjoy fruit snacks with your child or let them see you pack fruit with your lunch.
