Fruits

How much, how often?

Provide around 2 or 3 smaller serves of fruit over the day.

Fun food hint

Make fruit fun like making snakes with cherry tomatoes or faces with melon pieces and berries, or even just slicing, grating or chopping sticks.

 

Food safety hint

Big fruit sizes should be cut for little people to minimise choking risk and always supervise toddlers when eating.
