First let them choose, then taste together

How do you get your kids to eat 5 fruits and veggies a day? We’ve got a couple of ideas and we would love to hear your ideas.

Let Kids Choose a New Fruit or Veggie

Kids are more likely to try a food that they have a hand in choosing. Plan a trip to the grocery store and explore the colorful rows of fruits and veggies. Let them choose one veggie or fruit to take home and try. That’s one way to serve them 5 a day. Do you have ideas?


Taste Fruits & Veggies Together

Use positive words such as crunchy, sweet, and yummy when tasting together. If your child doesn’t like a new veggie or fruit, let them know that everyone’s tastes change over time. They might need to try the veggie or fruit again another time. That’s one way to serve them 5 a day. What words do you use to describe your favorite fruits or veggies?
