Five ways to get your kids eating fruit

Getting a youngster who would rather be munching on crisps to eat grapes, apples or any other healthy option might seem impossible. So if you need some inspiration, we’ve got some tips to make your little ones fall in love with fruit…

1. It’s not just peppers and chicken that work well on a kebab, how about cutting up a range of fruit such as melon, apple and pineapple to pop on a skewer? It’s an appealing twist on a traditional fruit salad.

2. Perhaps being flamboyant with fruit doesn’t work with your youngsters, so how about disguising one of their five a day? Making smoothies or ice lollies is a healthy way of hiding a variety of fruit, especially during the warm weather.

3. If your little one doesn’t like being told what to do, get them involved and let them make a shopping list of fruit, pick it out in one of our food stores and pay for it at the till. When you get home, prepare the fruit together before sitting down to enjoy your healthy snack. They’ll feel much more grown up and is a great way to let them have a say.

4. For a youngster, being told that fruit is ‘good for you’ and will make you ‘big and strong’ isn’t the best incentive in the world. Try introducing a simple reward system like getting a sticker for eating all their fruit or even a gold star chart to work towards a bigger treat.

5. Finally, for a fun, fruity dessert try a chocolate fondue. Cut up banana, strawberries, kiwis or anything you have to hand, melt some chocolate and get dipping. It’s an ideal weekend treat that everyone can enjoy.

If you fancy giving some of our tips a try, kids aged 15 years or under can get free fruit all summer from our food stores with their junior member fruit card.
