  • 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.

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

  • Cook extra portions of vegies at dinnertime and use the leftovers for lunches the next day.

  • Add grated carrot or pumpkin to a wholegrain muffin recipe. Or for a sweet alternative, add banana or apple instead.
