Five a Day (Fruit and Vegetables) for Kids
(scroll this section to read all)



You need to try to eat 5 lots of fruit and vegetables per day to stay healthy and help you grow. If you want to perform well at school or at sports and become really healthy then fruit and vegetables are one of your best allies! They give you lots of vitamins, minerals and fiber plus a small amount of carbohydrates. Fruit and veg contain only a few calories and fill you up easily making it easier to maintain a healthy weight.

Vary your choice of fruit and vegetables so you don't get bored and try different ones all the time. Ideally you should eat fresh fruit and vegetables (cooked or uncooked) but frozen and tinned varieties still count towards your 5 portions a day.

How do I know what one portion of fruit or veg looks like?

Check this handy guide which shows you in pictures what a portion is: 5 A DAY poster guide
