  • Get the kids involved with preparing vegies! Younger children can use their hands to shred lettuce and wash vegies, while older kids can be taught how to safely use a peeler. For more ideas visit the Fresh Tastes: healthy food at school section of this website.

  • Try new foods with your child and talk to them about the taste, texture, smell and look.

  • Try to shop once for the whole week to save time and money.

  • Ready-made vegie-based soups (without the noodles) from the supermarket can be a good healthy option - just check they don’t have added fat and salt.

  • Larger serve sizes may be needed for children who are taller or more active.
