Tips for encouraging children to eat more fruit and veg

16 Jan 2017

Tips for encouraging children to eat more fruit and veg 

Parents and carers should be role models by eating fruits and vegetables themselves as younger children learn by copying.

Serve fruit at every breakfast and fruit and veg at both main meals so that children see this as normal.

Stir fry or roast vegetables as this gives them a less bitter taste than boiling or steaming.

Do not substitute pouches of pureed baby food as substitutes for pieces of fruit and veg for younger children.

In social gatherings sit reluctant eaters next to peers who eat fruit and vegetables enthusiastically.
