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

  • Try different fruit for their different textures - apples for their crunch, bananas for their smoothness, and oranges for their juiciness.

  • If you're short on time, try a simple meal like tuna and packaged salad or pesto pasta made with pesto in a jar. For more ideas check out our simple and low cost Recipes.

  • Try your best to avoid using rewards (such as dessert) to encourage your child to eat. Instead, praise your child with words (or maybe the promise of kicking a ball outside) when they try something new.

  • When planning meals, make enough to include leftovers where possible and then set aside for tomorrow's lunch!
