Have fun with introducing new healthy foods to your children, and get cooking together.
Select a new fruit or vegetable that is unfamiliar. Play with it, touch it, squeeze it, slice it, taste it. Create a new and fun healthy recipe with the new fruit or vegetable as a key ingredient. Or select a recipe from myfamily.kiwi
Let children choose their favourite dinner – give them a selection of choices from the myfamily.kiwi website, such as fish burgers or chicken drumsticks with potatoes and coleslaw. Let them be involved in creating the meal.
Collect some home grown vegetables from the garden and make a special meal.
Fruit and veggie markets can be a great way for kids to choose new foods they might like to try as well as being a fun morning out.
Play ‘guess the fruit or vegetable’ game, blindfold your child and hand then a fruit or vegetable, let them feel it, taste it, and guess what it is.
Create a fruit or vegetable person using a skewer or cocktail stick, or create a face on a plate. Use bananas, berries, citrus fruit, apples, pears, grapes, carrot sticks, cucumber, or celery. Then you can eat it.
