Vegies and legumes

How much, how often?

Provide around 5 smaller serves of different vegetables and/or legumes over the day.

Food safety hint

Big, hard vegetable pieces (e.g. carrots) should be cut and steamed to soften for little people and always supervise toddlers when eating.

Nutrition tip

If you don’t have fresh vegetables, frozen and canned are also good choices. Choose reduced or no added salt, fat or sugar varieties.
