Make fruit and veggies fun with these easy-to-prepare snack ideas

Why fruit and veg are great

Fresh fruit and vegetables are always the best snack choice for your kids – they contain vitamins and minerals, are a good source of fibre and count towards their 5 A Day. Plus, they're easy to eat on the go!

Top tips for snack time

It's easy to replace your usual snacks with fruit and vegetables. Here are some top tips!

1. Keep it in easy reach – have a fruit bowl in the house so fruity snacks are nearby when your kids are peckish.

2. Fill the fridge – have ready-to-eat fruit and veg, like carrot, cucumber, celery and peppers, pre-prepared for an easy snack kids can eat with their fingers.

3. Pack a snack – save money, and time, when you're out and about by taking bananas, apples or chopped up vegetables with you.

4. Get the kids involved – try making snack time exciting and more hands-on. Get your child involved by getting them to chop up the fruit and vegetables they're going to eat, they'll love chopping it up themselves!
